We recognize that everyone likes to have a good time. At Walter Lawson Children's Home, we have a recreational program that is planned by our Activity Department in which group and one-to-one activities are scheduled.

Our children enjoy outings to neighborhood parks, community facilities, and special attractions. Some of our most memorable outings include: Rockford Lightning Games, Rockford Speedway, professional wrestling, musical concerts, the circus, and hayrides. Our highlight of the summer is our annual camp program. These diverse opportunities help to broaden the children's awareness of and interest in their environment.
