The Activity Connection programs at Children’s Specialized Hospital include recreation, sports, and social activities for children and teens with special health care needs. The programs provide opportunities to make new friends, participate in physical activities, and enjoy new experiences. All programs are led by Children’s Specialized Hospital’s therapists, certified program instructors, coaches, and trained volunteers who provide age-appropriate and safe activities in an inclusive and fun environment. Our community recreation programs are available for patients and members of the public. Many programs fill up quickly, so early registration is recommended.
