Bus Trips

Overview

Bus trips are open to Therapeutic Recreation members and their families. Although non-members may register for any trips listed, Night Club and Teen Club and LIFE members will have priority seating on bus trips. Non-members will pay an additional $10 fee.

Transportation for all trips is provided by Owatonna Bus Company, with home pickups and drop offs available to members residing within city limits (as needed.) Requests for at home pick ups should be made at the time of registration. Wheelchair accommodations by lift are available also.

Safety & Identification

Experienced Park and Recreation staff supervise the bus trips, and carry emergency information of individuals traveling with the group. They also determine emergency procedures, if necessary. Program identification neckwear is provided for all trips to insure a means of personal identification if members become lost or separated from the group. PCAs, home staff, or parents are welcome to accompany members if their abilities or behaviors warrant assistance.

Registration

Deadlines are listed for all trips and fees are expected prior to trip day. Paid fees will be returned only if trips are cancelled due to lack of registrants or inclement weather. All return times listed are approximations. Please allow time for early returns and plan for a prompt pick up.

Newsletters

Details for these will appear in our newsletters with deadlines and fees listed. Our newsletters are printed quarterly, and are available at the Therapeutic Recreation office and online. Call the Therapeutic Recreation office if you would like to receive our newsletter at 507-774-7110.
