The Leisure Services program is an innovative, community-based, therapeutic recreation program serving a wide variety of participants. A calendar of diverse and exciting activities is distributed on a monthly basis to clients served by the Arc Knox County as well as other citizens in the community who request it. Activities are designed to allow participants to personalize their own leisure schedules while increasing their independence, improving self-esteem, and enhancing their quality of life. Weekly outings include a wide variety of activities, such as bowling, movies, local sporting events, walking groups, and Special Olympics activities. Several vacations are offered each year as well, and in the past have included trips to places such as New York City, the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and Myrtle Beach, just to mention a few.
