Due to COVID-19 related health & safety issues pertaining to operating specialized programs, the following AccessABLE Recreation 2020 summer programs are cancelled:

  • Summer Day Camps

  • Soccer

  • Miracle League

  • Spring Fling Picnic & Dance

 AccessABLE Recreation staff will continue to follow state and industry recommendations with hopes of re-opening programs this fall.


The AccessABLE Recreation program was initiated in 1975 by the ARC and parents of children and adult children who had special needs living in the Rochester Community. Initial activities included arts, crafts, summer day camps, and swimming. The first program coordinator was hired to develop the program through the Parks and Recreation Department. With the help and commitment of advocates, families, and community partners, the AccessABLE Recreation program has grown into a year-round community recreation program serving approximately 2000 people per year with cognitive, social, and physical disabilities. 


To enhance the physical, social, and recreational experiences of persons who identify as having a cognitive, social, and/or physical disability.
