Recreation for Individuals with Special Needs

Waterford Parks & Recreation Social Clubs for individuals with special needs is a one of a kind group for all ages.  We offer two age groups: Little Buddies - Ages 4-13 and Flash's Friendship Club - Ages 14+.  These two clubs are designated to meet the needs of individuals with physical and developmental/cognitive disabilities.  Monthly activities include arts and crafts, fitness classes, movies, games and much more!  Currently, we are offering an activity on the third Thursday of every month for each age group (see link to calendar below).

Become a Member

To become a member of either club, you will need to fill out the age appropriate information form and bring the filled out form to any club meeting or drop off the form to the Waterford Parks & Recreation office.  Forms can also be emailed to Sara Frederick.  Membership forms will also be available at each club meeting for walk-ins.

Upcoming Activities

To register for an activity check out our calendar of activities and please call our office at 248-674-5441 to let us know you are coming.  No payment is due at the time of registration.  If any activity has a fee listed with it, please bring that payment in cash/check (checks made out to Waterford Parks & Recreation) to the activity.


Club members have the option to purchase t-shirts.  Fill out the order form and turn into Sara at any of the monthly meetings. 


In an effort to keep the cost low for the activities, Waterford Parks & Recreation is seeking sponsors for the social clubs.
