We provide opportunities for personal engagement through community access, small group and one-on-one activities, mentoring and tutoring. Daily programming includes our “clubs” that are designed around individual members’ Personal Goal Plans (PGP), interests, strengths, and needs.
Hike & Swim Club
ITA staff takes members on a variety of hiking trails throughout Kitsap County. Staff members keep safety the number one priority, looking out for each person and leading the hike based on abilities and skill level. After hiking, members receive one on one mentoring, supervision and assistance in swimming at the Bainbridge Aquatics Center.
BRIDGE Fitness is a group fitness class for teens and adults with special needs. BRIDGE stands for Building Recreational Interest in Diverse Groups in Education. BRIDGE Fitness is first and foremost a group fitness experience. We emphasize working as a group, encouraging one another, and building a sense of connectedness with each other as we work on fitness goals. Our overall fitness goals are building strength, stamina, agility, flexibility, familiarity with a wide variety of sports, dance forms, exercise forms, and knowledge about fitness and health. Another goal of BRIDGE Fitness is to make fitness fun, interesting, and a preferred activity. Units we rotate through are dance, soccer, baseball, kickball, basketball and bucketball, four square, balloon volleyball, miniature golf, bowling, obstacle courses, parachute activities, and fitness games. Benefits of BRIDGE Fitness include feeling calm yet energized at the end of class.
