Recreation Empowerment Course (R.E.C.)

The Recreation Empowerment Course (R.E.C.) is a 4-week course designed to help create a community within recreation and introduce groups to different areas of recreation while empowering them to try new things, grow their skills and enhance their overall wellness. Each R.E.C. session will end with a final event or trip where participants can put their skills and knowledge to use. 

The areas R.E.C. will target include Fitness & Wellness, Aquatics, Govs Outdoors, and Intramurals. Each semester will have a different focus - from the particpant groups to recreation areas. This Fall, R.E.C. will focus on Women and combine Fitness & Outdoor activities. 

A few examples of participant groups to be part of R.E.C. include those below and more to come! Do you have a group or activities that you would like to be a part of R.E.C.? Contact Lauren Wilkinson, wilkinsonl@apsu.edu, with any questions.


The Recreation Empowerment Course this semester will focus on Women in the Outdoors.
