Therapeutic Recreation at JMCC has helped my girls gain self confidence in their abilities. They enjoy the programs whether they be virtual or in person. The programming is dynamic, well-planned and focuses on the strengths of each participant. When we had to switch to a virtual mode of delivery, Grace and Natalie were grateful to still be able to see their friends. Each week they looked forward to a treasure hunt and art activity or just some fun conversation with friends. During the summer the girls especially enjoyed doing the classes outside. One of their favourite memories of the summer was sitting under their climber in the yard and drawing to music with Mallory. There were a lot of smiles and laughter that day. We are thankful because these programs have given the girls a chance to be creative, connect with friends and learn new skills.

Grace and Natalie started with Therapeutic Recreation last year to join JMCC’s first ever girls group and am I ever happy that they did! These two social butterflies made the rest of the participants feel welcomed and they even helped ease my nerves over the new group. Grace and Natalie now participate in every age appropriate group and I have witnessed so much growth in them both. These sisters are both friendly, happy, creative, and can put a smile on anyone’s face. I am thankful to their amazing family for giving so much support to the Rec programs at JMCC. Grace and Natalie, you guys ROCK!!
