The growing importance of recreation in the united states is due to a number of factors, chief of which is the tremendous increase in leisure time. Man has always dreamed of the ideal state of existence as one in which he might be free to do as he desires. Technological improvements and developments have so increased man's efficiency and production that leisure has been extended to everyone.
The role of recreation and the recreation leader is to recognize the need for worthy leisure and supply facilities and leadership to satisfy that need. Recreation must be ever-changing and willing to be changed. No stereo-type program the needs of man's leisure time in an ever-changing social world. Man's recreational needs for tomorrow cannot always be administered to by today's prescription. Recreation must not only activities it wants but must be prone to supply the public with what is needed but not recognized as a need.
