Independence for the Developmentally Disabled
Our independence program is designed for two purposes. The first is to provide the developmentally delayed with access to quality summer camp experiences. The second purpose is to begin the process of instilling campers, at an early age with a sense of independence. Summer camp programs allow developmentally disabled children, who are more often dependent than non-disabled children, the freedom to participate on their own. Camping helps children to develop a sense of themselves as capable individuals.
