Summer Camps for Children With Physical Disabilities
by Amputee Coalition Youth Activities Program Coordinator (Revised 2010)
For many, summer camp evokes joyful memories of watching stars around a campfire, eating hotdogs and s’mores, and making lifelong friends. It’s a place where youths can enjoy time-honored activities such as horseback riding, swimming, and nature walks in the woods. For adolescents with physical disabilities, it can be an especially important opportunity to meet others like them and understand that they are not alone. The following camps provide such opportunities to youth with physical challenges.
