Socialization through Recreation

Variety’s Recreation programs aim to introduce lifelong friendships through engaging activities.

Making Friends and Having Fun

Variety’s Recreation programs give children with disabilities unique in-person and virtual opportunities to enjoy engaging activities while socializing with friends old and new.

These programs, which are open to Variety Kids living in the greater Kansas City region, help participants learn new skills, gain independence, build confidence, and more, by having fun.
