About The Wolf Den:
The Wolf Den Recreation Center is a multipurpose recreation center offering adults with intellectual disabilities access to various activities and events. The purpose of the Wolf Den is to provide a safe place for those with intellectual disabilities to meet their friends and peers, develop job skills, social skills and independent life skills, and foster accountability, attitudes of giving and empathy, and a sense of community.
The Wolf Den gymnasium offers a space for basketball, frisbee, volleyball, dancing, and much more. The game room offers numerous opportunities for members to work on their skills and challenge each other to pool, air hockey, foosball, and ping pong or beat the clock in the basketball shooting game. Members can also engage their creative selves in the craft room. The craft room offers coloring, painting, card making, beading, and at least one organized craft per week led by a volunteer. If the member simply wants to relax, there’s a room for that! A TV, board and card games, and books can be found in the relaxation room.
The Den would not be complete without a huge kitchen for cooking, baking and more! The kitchen is open every evening, offering homemade meals at reasonable prices.
One of the most exciting parts of the The Den is the outdoor space. The grounds include a softball field, soccer fields, basketball hoops, a picnic shelter, and plenty of space to run! An area has been prepared for a garden as well.
In addition to the regularly scheduled Den hours, members can take advantage of Girls’ Night or Guys’ Night once a month, Bible study, and special events like Halloween Parties and New Year’s Eve Parties.
The Wolf Den is only Phase I of our master plan and we hope to offer much more in the coming months and years!
What’s For Dinner?
Each night The Den is open a meal is available for purchase. Beverages available for purchase often include coffee and pop, although pop is available only twice a week. If members wish to bring food money for the month (or the week, etc.) ahead of time, we will manage and track those funds until they are gone. For those without spending money, free snacks like popcorn, crackers, or PBJ sandwiches are available.
