RECREATION

The Recreation Department strives to provide you with a variety of satisfying and meaningful leisure experiences and skills. It is the goal of the Recreation Department to provide programs that will enable you to make constructive use of your free time and teach you new skills.

Scheduled activities will include sports, athletics, arts, crafts, music, and entertainment. New programs will be introduced as interest and participation warrant. Most programs and activities will be scheduled at a time when the majority of inmates are free from work assignments and are free to participate.

Recreation programs and classes are voluntary.

As in Education classes, the Recreation classes are taught by a certified, competent instructor with a well defined curriculum.

FCI Pekin is fortunate to have a wide variety of recreational facilities that include recreation yards with basketball, handball, and volleyball courts, as well as softball fields and a soccer/flag football field.
