Who We Are

Formerly known as Special Needs Recreation, Adapted & Inclusive Programs has been serving the Comox Valley quality programs and experiences for individuals with disabilities for over 35 years. 

Adapted Programs strives in making recreation accessible for everyone by providing special programs for individuals with developmental disabilities. We are a resource for information on recreation for individuals with disabilities and support networking and advocacy around accessibility issues.

This is all thanks to the Comox Valley Regional District and the Comox Valley Community Foundation for their funding and ongoing support, as well as, Courtenay Recreation for programming and administration, plus, an extra special thanks to our amazing instructors and volunteers.

Leisure Buddies

 

Our Leisure Buddies program sets up your child/youth with one-on-one support in the recreation program of their interest. Families will register for the programs of interest and notify the Adapted & Inclusive Programming Supervisor that their child requires extra support and will arrange for an intake.  

During the intake, families will fill out a comprehensive form that goes over the child’s strengths, challenges, triggers, and strategies to aid in setting the participant up for success in the program.

Please Note: Leisure Buddies Services requires a minimum of 2 weeks’ notice prior to start of program to complete the intake process and find an appropriate Leisure Buddy. 

Please contact the Adaptive & Inclusive Program Supervisor to complete an Inclusion Intake.

Thank you to the Comox Valley Community Foundation and CVRD for their ongoing support that allows us to offer affordable programming options for inclusion in Courtenay Recreation programs. Back to top
