General Information
Description of ServiceThis summer developmental camping program offers various overnight camps and weekend retreats for children and adults with spina bifida and related disabilities. The program combines traditional camp fun with skill development in a barrier-free atmosphere regardless of disability. For many, it is an opportunity to be with friends and experience activities never thought possible.

A primary focus of the program is to work on teaching health care, life management, pre-vocational, and interpersonal skills. These skills are taught indirectly through goal-oriented activities such as games, crafts, cooking and computer classes, and discussion groups. Each summer program has a specific theme with targeted goals and objectives. Personalized goal plans are also created for each participant. The individual does not need to be independent in self care routines to participate. Groups are determined based on age and interests.
