Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission's Therapeutic Recreation programs are designed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities in our community. We offer programs and activities for both children and adults with cognitive, physical and emotional disabilities. Our purpose is to create positive experiences that develop appropriate leisure and social skills that help participants become increasingly self-confident, courageous and independent. We want our customers to feel right at home and make new friends with staff and other participants.
The TR program offers a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities including: canoing the Saluda River, geocaching, day trips, theatrical shows, and sporting events. We also offer classes like photography, painting, basketweaving and more. Some of our program offerings include:
- Afterschool Programs
- Special Events
- Summer Camps

Spotlight TR Program
Seven Oaks Sleuths Mystery Dinner
Seven Oaks Sleuths is a theater program designed for young adults with disabilities. The program develops self-confidence and public speaking skills through theatrical performance. Members of the Sleuths will participate in two practice sessions then perform an original mystery theater production. The show is a hour of scripted mystery, improvisation and audience participation. Dinner and dessert are served during the production. Family members and friends are invited to attend. Each mystery dinner has a theme and is held at a cozy location so that all can hear the dialogue and clues to be able to solve the mystery. Seven Oaks Sleuths perform twice a year, once in late summer and again in early winter.
