2022 Therapeutic Recreation Institute

Saturday, August 27, 2022 to Monday, August 29, 2022 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando, FL

The Florida Recreation and Park Association is pleased to host the Annual Therapeutic Recreation Institute. The 2022 Institute will bring together professionals from across TR/RT service delivery areas for two and a half days of education and networking. Share best practices, generate new programming and treatment ideas, and explore ways we can work together to strengthen our profession. Presenters with a wide variety of expertise in mental health, physical rehab and community-based programming will provide a solid offering of CEUs that will inspire all attendees to return to their jobs with new ideas and tools for success. Sessions on Monday, August 29 will overlap with the annual FRPA State Conference and therefore TR Institute attendees are invited to take advantage of additional CEU opportunities being offered Monday afternoon. You are also invited to attend the Opening General Session. Registration fees include all educational sessions and CEU transcripts. Register before August 1st for the early bird registration rate.

IMPORTANT: If you want a room with two queen beds you need to select that option on the room selection screen. If you are calling the reservation line, you need to specify this with the agent. Otherwise you will be given "run of house" and that will be whatever kind of room is available at check in - possibly one king/possibly two queens.
