About this Project
Discover Camp is a collaborative project of professionals and organizations dedicated to the inclusion of children with disabilities and chronic illnesses in all areas of recreation. The online guide and publications are collaborative initiatives of the National Center on Physical Activity and Disability-University of Illinois at Chicago, the National Center on Accessibility, and Bradford Woods-Indiana University. Discover Camp is funded through a grant from the Division of Human Development and Disability at the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
During the 2002 camp season, Recreation Therapy interns interviewed parents of first-time campers and returning campers to Bradford Woods. A special thanks to the families, parents and campers for sharing their experiences, recommendations and suggestions for families about to select a camp for the first time; and a note of thanks to the interns that collected the most frequently asked questions from parents including: Brandi Bruce (Indiana State University), Betsy Colburn (Eastern Illinois University), Rebecca Krest (Springfield College), and Kim Lunde (East Carolina University).
