Social Recreation program

Recreational services offered by Bell provide opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities to experience life to the fullest. Structured activities such as tours, day trips, and vacations enhance social skills and allow participants to build life-long friendships in real life situations.

Programs offered through Bell’s social recreation department include:

York Day Program/York Evenings/Dallastown Evening

Structured activities are planned and offered five days and two evenings every week. These programs offer opportunities for participants to develop relationship skills while participating in group and community activities. Typical opportunities include nutrition classes, dancing and karaoke, bowling, walking to Central Market and Martin Library, crafts, and more.


Directed by the preferences of attendees, Options members meet monthly to plan their own social calendar of events with minimal assistance from staff. Participating in a variety of activities, they begin to make educated choices regarding social activities. The group has taken in shows at Sight & Sound, baseball games with the York Revolution, trips to the Turkey Hill Experience, and more.
