Staff and Associate Alumni Spotlight #2


Brielle Stark, PhD, 2005-2010, Resource Counselor, Residential Counselor, Program Associate



Recreation Unlimited Experience:
“I continually credit my time at Recreation Unlimited for forming who I am, both personally and professionally.  Personally, Recreation Unlimited taught me about the power and importance of kindness, patience, and support.  Throughout my years there, I learned that limits were largely mental and about the importance of supportive peers.  Recreation Unlimited was the first place that taught me to recognize and then to celebrate diversity and inclusivity.”

Experience Impact: “Professionally, I now conduct research that evaluates the neurobiology of language as well as how language and communication recovers after stroke. I was drawn to a career in research, but was guided to focus this research in humans, and specifically in aphasia (a language disorder commonly occurring after left hemisphere stroke) partially because of my experiences at Recreation Unlimited. Recreation Unlimited encourages language and communication through fun, supportive activities and environments, and I saw firsthand how socialization and communication grew over the course of a week’s camp, and because of my long tenure at Recreation Unlimited, I also witnessed growth of campers’ communication and self-confidence across the years. These experiences inspired me to make a career focused on understanding how these processes change and how we can support this change.  My current position is Assistant Professor of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University.”

Recreation Unlimited Camps Update

Recreation Unlimited was very pleased to offer camp sessions for individuals with disabilities and health concerns in 2020. We are looking forward to continuing with camps and programs for individuals with disabilities and health concerns in 2021.

We have worked with the Delaware General Health Department and our medical team to determine the best protocols on running a safe camp.  Commonly touched surfaces will be routinely disinfected, hand washing will be done on a regular basis, masks will be worn, physical distancing practiced, and daily temperature checks will be a few of the protocols being implemented.  For a copy of our Camps Reopening Toolkit, please send an email request to dhudler@recreationunlimited.org.  

All 2021 camp dates are contingent on Government regulations, Recreation Unlimited policy and are subject to change.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email.
