Camps

Camp Buckaroo

A week-long day camp for children with disabilities (ages 6-15) and their siblings (ages 6-10) to attend together. Campers are paired 1:1 with a volunteer, who acts as their buddy throughout the week and helps to lead them through activities. Each day of camp has a different theme like "A Day At The Beach" or "Out of this World" and all music, games, and crafts are geared towards the day's theme. We offer four different sessions of Camp Buckaroo throughout June and July; campers and volunteers are able to choose the dates & location that best works for them. Camp hours are from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for campers, Monday through Friday. All volunteers must be at least 15 years of age to volunteer at Camp Buckaroo; interviews are required for new volunteers..

Camp MOST

Camp MOST (Miles of Smiles for Teens) is a weekend long retreat for teens and young adults with cerebral palsy or similar neurological disorders between the ages of 14 and 21. Camp MOST is generally held twice a year Fall and Winter. MOST was started with the mission to give teens and young adults with cerebral palsy or similar neurological disorders the opportunity to socialize, gain confidence and be comfortable just the way they are. It is all about encouraging teens along in their transition from childhood to adulthood. High school is tough for any teenager, and when you bring a disability into the mix, it adds a whole other dimension to the puzzle. At Camp MOST, the teens and young adults find a support group among each other and are able to talk about what it’s like to be a person with a disability, and share advice about how to teach their peers about disabilities in a positive way. Camp activities include short workshops for campers to gain vital social skills and learn important social lessons, as well as the usual fun camp activities. The cost is $400 per camper.
