Camp is a summertime staple, a place where abilities are discovered, independence tested, lifelong friendships born and cherished memories made. But for children with disabilities and their parents, finding a fully accessible, adequately staffed camp can seem nearly impossible.
To address the needs of children and adults with disabilities - and allow them to experience joys and challenges unique to summer camp - many camping and recreation facilities across the United States now offer fully-accessible camping. From campfire sing-a-longs to boating, nature walks, swimming, and arts and crafts, accessible camps provide all the excitement and activities available at mainstream summer camps.
Accessible grounds and facilities, adapted equipment and trained staff make it possible for campers with disabilities to enjoy the most challenging aspects of camp life.
