Therapeutic recreation is a process utilising activity based interventions addressing needs of individuals with illness, giving those the option for a social paddle on a stand up paddle board or kayak.
Sessions are run every Wednesday morning 7:30am (excluding school holidays and weather dependant) for approximately one hour, from Boardwalk Boats.
This complimentary session is available to cancer survivors (post-treatment) as a local community service. Participants must have pre-approval from their medical treating doctor.
Participants from diverse backgrounds engage with each other or just simply paddle for recreation. For some this is their first time on a stand up paddle board or kayak. Basic instruction is available prior to each session, if requested. Some have participated for a few years and have helped newbies overcome any initial “jitters”. One of the participants acts as a guide joining you on each session. Buoyancy vests are included, just ask.
