OAR 416-500-0010


Recreation: Any play or leisure activity in which offenders participate, either structured or unstructured. Recreation activities are intended to refresh, offer sport, and/or pastime. Recreation is all those things that a person or group chooses to do in order to make leisure time more interesting, more enjoyable, and more personally satisfying. Purposeful recreational activities can be used to develop physical, cognitive, social, and emotional skills in juvenile settings. Such activities provide positive reinforcement and provide healthy pro-social alternatives to boredom and illegal behavior. Recreation develops concepts of cooperation and sportsmanship.


Substitute care placements: Any of the out-of-home care and treatment programs authorized by the OYA to serve offenders in OYA custody, including contracted residential treatment programs and certified foster homes. Substitute care placements exclude the OYA’s close custody facilities.


Substitute care providers: Persons authorized by the OYA through contract or other written agreement to provide supervision and care for offenders on parole or probation status in the community. Such persons include, but are not limited to, contracted residential treatment providers and certified foster parents (including respite providers).
