If you were to visit our Brick campus on any given day you might not find our participants on campus at all. From pound classes at the local firehouse to catching some rays at our favorite local hang out, Windward Beach, you will always find PTC participants engaging in community-based activities. Every year we also look forward to our favorite trips including Six Flag’s Great Adventure for Autism Day, The Centra State Health Museum and the Cape May County Park & Zoo!
When you do find us on campus you might find us in our brand new kitchen taking cooking lessons from a professional chef. Chef Devin attends our program monthly to lead participants in hands-on cooking classes. These step by step culinary demonstrations are helping all of us become professionals in the kitchen. We also enjoy monthly visits from our therapy dog Hailey, from the local Animal Shelter. Or you may catch our participants learning sign language, how to work a cash register, and relaxing through the power of yoga and meditation.
Volunteering and giving back to our community is one of our greatest accomplishments here at PTC Brick.
We have worked together to hold a clothing drive to help give back to those in need, cleaned up the beaches for people to use at Island Beach State Park, and created military care packages for our soldiers overseas! We also love to collect toys and items to help at-risk youth and our local homeless population during the holiday season. The unselfish efforts of PTC participants to bring cheer to others is the beginning of happier lives for ourselves.
