Why should I study to be a
Recreation Programmer?

Leisure. Planning. Challenge.

Do you like challenging jobs were you can employ your dynamic personality and skills? Then recreation programming might be the career choice for you. As a recreation programmer, your typical day will never be a typical day. A recreation programmer is responsible for providing recreation opportunities for the agency, community or district where they are employed. As such, a recreation programmer must be able to adapt to new and challenging situations while providing the best leisure services possible. While most people have been through some type of recreation program, generally they are unaware of the presence of a recreation programmer who enabled the event to come off without problems. A recreation programmer is a doer who is cognizant of others leisure needs and provides them. This career is challenging and ever-changing, but is quite rewarding.
