The Arc Northeastern Pennsylvania Achieve with Us


Recreation Services

Throughout the year, The Arc offers a variety of recreational opportunities. Every effort is made to meet the needs of our participants by offering a diverse selection of both community and facility based activities. We strive to make inclusive options available which lead our consumers to independent leisure skills development. Regularly scheduled leisure choices are offered each week throughout the year. Programs are varied and include dinners, dances, swimming, bingo, arts/crafts, special events and much more. Our Fun and Friendship Bowling League meets on Tuesday and Friday evenings. There is a summer camp offered to children beginning in July.

In addition "Arc Tracks" presents travel prospects for those who enjoy excursions to destinations such as New York City, Philadelphia, Lancaster and other destinations for shows, shopping, zoos, sporting events, amusement parks and so many other outings.

St. Patrick’s Day at The Arc 6:00pm Come and enjoy a virtual tour of Ireland with Miss Battersby, after that we will also enjoy a virtual field trip to an Irish Dance Academy!!! The importance of the Irish Dances started at The London branch. They held the first social dance event, called a ceili in 1897. From here Irish dance played an important role in the structure of Irish communities by helping them preserve their Irish identity. However, in Ireland, dance was an expression of nationalism. After our tours we will enjoy some Irish dancing with our friends and family.
