Recreational activities enrich our lives in so many ways. Consider all of your favorite activities and how they make life better. Think about why they are enjoyable and what life would be like without them. As we age, or become disabled, it may be difficult to enjoy favorite activities. Illness or injury can make it difficult to perform tasks that were effortless in the past. Social isolation can be an unintended result of later life. There are many reasons why people give up doing things they once enjoyed. There are many benefits to enjoying recreational activities. The benefits of recreation affect all aspects of life. Participating in recreational activities helps improve physical well-being, emotional health, and cognitive functioning. It also offers opportunities to socialize with peers.
Through Access Granted, Rec and Chill offers accessible recreational outings, programs, and events for the elderly, veterans, and individuals with special needs or disabilities.
We are a mobile service, where we bring the programming to you. We are looking to partner with different facilities, organizations, clubs, groups, and even families to offer theses services.
Our services are created in relation to the many elements of holistic wellness, which help build a different part of your overall well-being.
We currently are offering an Accessible Boating Program in St. Petersburg, Florida. We have partnered with Bird Dog's Boat to bring this opportunity to life.

Employment of recreational therapists is projected to grow 10 percent from 2020 to 2030, about as fast as the average for all occupations. About 1,900 openings for recreational therapists are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
In effort to support the continued growth of the recreational therapy field we will provide scholarships to current recreational therapy students throughout the year.

Advocacy is an important part of every recreational therapist’s job – advocacy for clients, and for the field of recreational therapy itself.
Through our vision, Rec and Chill seeks to be resourceful for current recreational therapist, students, consumers, and anyone who want to explore the wonderful world of Recreational Therapy.
