Recreation

Summary

Imagine a place where campers with disabilities are free to be themselves and valued for it. Where they are able to try new things and make new friends in an accessible, inclusive, and fun environment. Campers of all ages and abilities can challenge themselves, set goals and accomplish them – making the most of their camp experience. In this relaxed environment, families and caregivers can be confident their loved one is safe and taken care of, and in return, they receive a respite. Campers will have the time of their lives at a place they’ll never forget.
