Discovery Club


What is Discovery Club?

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. 

Who can attend?

Children and teens ages 6-18 living with any disability, including those with extensive needs. Siblings are welcome.
