Virtual Recreation Center

Welcome to WPRDs Virtual Recreation Center

WPRD has put together a Virtual Recreation Center to help get you through these tough times. Remember... we may be apart, but we are NOT alone! 

Our Virtual Recreation Center aims to provide resources and activities that are 100% free. In addition to checking out our Virtual Recreation Center below, be sure to let us know if you have any great ideas that can be added!  Send me an email at [email protected].
