Recreational groups that are fun and interesting are always in demand. HCO offers two separate recreational programs designed for adults living with a disability, the first program, Out and Abouters meet regularly on Friday evenings and then on Saturdays the Weekenders meet up for their activities.
The participants meet at Mount Barker and after enjoying their chosen outing, they are returned safely back to their homes.
Quarterly planning sessions are a major part of the experience. At these sessions, participants explore and research community events or interesting locations to visit. Activity suggestions are forwarded to the group for discussion. From there the activities are planned for in a friendly and educative environment.
Activities that are regularly enjoyed include attending local football matches, going fishing, kite flying, visiting museums, animal parks and zoos, playing mini golf and ten pin bowling, heading to the beach or local parks for walks, going out for coffees, lunches and dinners.
