A Saturday recreational program for children and teens living with any disability and any special health care need. Participants spend time with their peers enjoying activities such as art, games, music and more while being cared for by nursing students. Our staff of trained professionals are able to take care of children and teens with significant needs, including feeding, restroom assistance and administration of medication. While participants are attending Discovery Club, their caregivers receive a break from providing care.
Children and teens ages 6-18 living with any disability, including those with extensive needs. Siblings are welcome.
We will run Discovery Club from September 11, 2021 to May 28, 2022 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at four locations in the community:
Discovery Club is staffed by a Registered Nurse, a Program Director and nursing students from nursing schools in the area. Often, participants can receive 1:1 care.
