Recreation & Wellness

Sertoma Center’s Recreation and Wellness Department is staffed by a team of Certified Recreation Therapy Specialists. The program they have developed does more than simply offer opportunities for recreation. Education and exposure to many types of activities help the individuals served learn more about the experiences they enjoy and ultimately more about themselves. Some favorite activities include participation in Special Olympics, going to UT Basketball, Ice Bears Hockey, and Smokey’s Baseball games. They plan regular trips to Gatlinburg and Dollywood. The Rec Department is also responsible for daily & weekly in-house activities like therapeutic swimming, walking club, wellness cooking, and bocce league. It is a goal of the department to foster the growth in the individuals they serve. They achieve some of this with one-on-one therapy sessions, reading groups, and specifically designed activity boxes. The Recreation and Wellness Department is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of the people it serves.
