National Therapeutic Recreation Week

Observed: July 11, 2021 - July 17

National Therapeutic Recreation Week has been celebrated during the second week of July every year since 1984. Established by the National Therapeutic Recreation Society, the week is intended to raise awareness of therapeutic recreation programs and services that could improve the health and well-being of individuals with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities.

Recreational therapy, as it is often called, refers to the use of recreation and other activities prescribed as treatment interventions provided by professionals who are trained and certified. Healing interventions within the realm of recreation might include adapted sports, expressive arts, family intervention, progressive muscle relaxation, horticulture, or a therapeutic outing designed for reintegration into a community.
