Therapeutic recreation“The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, and the spirit heals with joy.”

Therapeutic recreationMagnolia Landing understands the importance of finding joy in our lives and the far-reaching benefits recreation has as we heal. Therapeutic recreation is essential as we focus on healing the whole person. Our historical and coastal location is home to endless recreational and cultural activities.

Weekends are set aside for enjoyment, relaxation and reflection. Clients will have the opportunity to engage in activities such as:

  • Climbing Cape Lookout and Shelling along the shore
  • Sailing along the Intracoastal Waterway
  • Boatbuilding at NC Maritime Museum
  • Touring Fort Macon State Park
  • Enjoying the sun and sand at our local beaches
  • Kayaking
  • Paddle boarding

Our hope is for the women of Magnolia Landing to live their lives to the fullest. This involves taking risks by trying new activities for the first time or engaging in recreational activities for the first time in many years. It is often the case that clients refrain from trying anything new because they are afraid of failing or appearing foolish. Our staff provides support and encouragement when clients are unsure of themselves, then celebrate alongside them as they experience a sense of pride, self-confidence and increased self-esteem.
