Special Recreation

Special Recreation of Joliet & Channahon (SRJC)

Special Recreation of Joliet & Channahon (SRJC) is a cooperative extension of the Joliet and Channahon Park Districts, which provides year-round recreation activities for individuals who wish to participate in alternative Park District programs. These programs are designed to help participants who have physical or mental disabilities, sensory impairments, or any other type of disability, to develop leisure skills, independent living skills, and motor skills. In addition to these benefits, perhaps the most important aspect of SRJC’s programs is fun! SRJC staff members have experience in therapeutic recreation or related fields. SRJC provides training sessions for all staff members. We will provide the appropriate staff-to-participant ratios. Transportation is available for some SRJC programs to residents of Joliet and Channahon for an additional fee.

For more information about SRJC or to request a registration form, call the office at 815-741-7275 ext. 160.
