Respite and Recreation

Civitan Foundation’s Respite and Recreation programs provide families with numerous weekly and monthly respite events and opportunities. These programs use 4 to 12 respite hours+ activity fee OR $15 private pay per hour + activity fee.

Designed to increase leisure opportunities, community functioning and socials skills through recreation, education, social activities and special interest classes these statewide activities continue throughout the year.  All services are individualized and based on each participant’s unique needs. Transportation may be available.

Friday Night Out (FNO) – Friday Night Out is one of our weekly programs which includes dinner and either, movies, bowling, game night, arts and crafts, BINGO or a Civitan Dance.

Saturday Social Club (SSC) – These outings are planned with requests from participants and families each quarter. Previous outings have included out of town daytrips in Arizona to Tombstone, Verde Valley, Sedona, and Flagstaff. Local events have included sporting events, theatre, water parks, wildlife parks, and many city and community sponsored events. We try to incorporate different venues and communities within Arizona.

Camp Civitan – Camp Civitan is our longest running and most beloved program. Participants engage in week-long camping sessions through the summer and weekends once a month. This program offers a variety of enriching and fun experiences that promote positive self-esteem, teamwork, socialization and healthy activities.
