Be an active member of society and have a fulfilling life! Whether it be playing cards, boating, Special Olympics, or simply hanging out, make a promise to yourself to have a little fun each day.

To start, call your local, public school system or community parks and recreation programs and ask to be placed on their mailing lists to receive current information on recreational programs in your area. For adaptive recreation, contact your local county commission for persons with disabilities, Center for Independent Living or community disability organizations.

New Horizons Un-Limited promotes the building of Accessible Cabins in the Wisconsin State Parks and their use for people with disabilities. Visit this power point in pdf format, Wisconsin Accessible Cabins, to view some of the most recent cabins and their attributes in the Wisconsin State Parks.
