Recreation is an important component of the Our House mission. Socialization is paramount for the happiness and well-being of the individuals we serve. We offer two types of recreational programs, Club OH!, which are themed dances and the Excursion Club, which offers exciting trips each month. They are attended by residents, supported employees and community members. Under the direction of our staff, individuals practice social skills, leadership skills, and are encouraged to participate in fitness classes. The summer is kicked off with the most anticipated event – the Annual Carnival, held each year at a local park and features entertainment, crafts, games and food for all to enjoy. This wonderful event is underwritten by the Artie Picon Recreation Fund so that everyone is able to attend.
There are so many fun things offered in the recreation program geared to all interests. Some of the activities enjoyed by the individuals served by Our House: Men’s Club meets once a month and they enjoy attending car shows, laser tag, and monster golf. Our Ladies Night offers pottery classes, glamour night and Irish Step Dancing. Enrichment Classes are offered in five weekly sessions. The classes offered are healthy cooking, creation station, bowling, to name a few.
This year the club members enjoyed many excursions. Some of the trips they enjoyed included Medieval Times, Dave and Busters, Spirit Cruise, Adventure Aquarium and the Somerset Patriots Game.
