Every summer, kids and young adults are looking forward to enjoy the great outdoors. Taking a swim at the lake, going fishing or exploring various walking trails is part of the grand valley summer time.  At Day Camps individuals with disabilities explore their abilities in a safe and therapeutic environment. Our camps allow participants the opportunity to work directly with peer volunteers, which in return provides an integrated therapeutic experience. We have a simple goal for our Day Camps: to provide opportunities for outdoor recreation through innovative, barrier-free environments. Space is limited. Reservations are required.

Where to meet

Las Colonias Park, 821 Struthers.  We will shuttle to and from this location. All participants need to be dropped off and picked up before and after each event from this location.

What to bring

Bring your own lunch, a water bottle, medications in their original bottles, sunscreen, a towel, bathing suit, change of clothes, light jacket, appropriate clothes and shoes for the activity. This means good shoes for running and hiking, and secured waterproof sandals for water activities (no flip flops), warmer clothes for when we travel to higher elevation, and most of all, a good attitude and willingness to be flexible.

What will be provided

Experienced, fun, safety-conscious supervision, snacks, water, sunscreen, insect repellant, life jackets, and misc. forgotten items. Please let us know of special dietary or unique accommodations you may need.  In extreme circumstances, we may ask you to provide your own lunch.
