OAR 416-500-0000


Recreational activities provide offenders with opportunities to practice social skills; alleviate idleness and boredom; provide positive reinforcement; develop the concepts of cooperation and sportsmanship; and improve self-esteem, health, and physical conditioning.


Recreational activities are an integral part of offender case planning.


The OYA will work with substitute care providers who serve OYA offenders in community placements to ensure that offenders receive opportunities for recreational activities that are provided in relation to the offender’s case plan in a manner that is safe for the community, participating offenders, and supervising staff.


Substitute care providers will schedule and make available to offenders appropriate recreational and leisure time activities, both within the residential treatment program or foster home and in the community.
