To kick start the New Year, we encourage everyone to shake off 2021 by getting out and getting active. All family members can have fun being active in the community. The Semper Fit Health Promotion and Exceptional Family Member (EFMP) teams have some ideas on how to enjoy recreational activities this year.

  • Accessible playgrounds
    • Playgrounds are easy and free entertainment for children of all ages. These playgrounds have been built throughout the Marine Corps and promote shared recreation and inclusion of kids with special needs.
  • Semper Fit Certified Inclusion Fitness Trainers
    • Certified Inclusion Fitness Trainers are available at fitness centers across the Marine Corps. The purpose of this training is to increase the fitness trainer’s awareness of various disabilities and how physical activity can be part of a comprehensive support plan.
  • Adaptive Equipment Check-out
    • Some installations offer adaptive equipment such as canoes, kayaks, and wheelchairs, as well as adaptive swim lessons.
  • Sensory-friendly movies
    • Looking for something a little more laid back? Contact the EFMP office for a schedule of sensory-friendly movie showings at your installation.
  • Special Olympics
    • When children are ready to take their fitness to the next level, some Marine Corps installations host Special Olympics competitions featuring basketball, soccer, track and field events, and more.
