Education & Recreation
SBRN educates the community and we also educate ourselves! We hold conferences for adults with spina bifida and parents of children with spina bifida where experts address medical issues, relationships, advocacy and independent living. We also sponsor our annual Adult Empowerment Retreat, which is a fun, informative, interactive weekend that includes educational seminars, recreational activities and social events exclusively for adults living with disabilities.
We host social and recreational events throughout the year for children, adults and families. For example, for many years, the Hollydell Ice Arena has hosted us as we bring sleds, skates and even wheelchairs on to the ice. We have also hosted swimming opportunities, circus fun, visits to museums and other outings. These events provide accessible, entertaining and challenging activities for everyone and provide a sense of community and camaraderie.
