If you have a career in the broad and diverse recreation field, you might work for a city, running their summer youth recreation program. Or perhaps you help folks with disabilities receive therapy though fun, enriching activities. You might even be a tour guide at a national monument. Because in the field of recreation there is wide range of career opportunities to choose from.
Today's recreation fields emerged from the youth development movements of the late 19th century. Recreation has become one of the fastest-growing and most personally rewarding fields in the U.S.
