Workshops by Bloom

One of our signature programs include our interactive and educational workshops which have been developed by our team of passionate and knowledgeable Recreation Therapists at Bloom Therapeutic Recreation and Fitness Inc. They have been developed with the goal of educating individuals about specific leisure options, broaden their knowledge about specific health & wellness topics or coping strategies and to offer resources to continue their leisure planning experience independently.

 

Below are some of the current workshops that are available at this time, although our experienced team are always happy to develop new ideas or customize existing ones to fit the needs of your organization.
