As a result of the ongoing health crisis related to COVID-19, we are unfortunately unable to offer in-person camp services this 2022 Season. We will continue to plan for a safe return of all our campers in the seasons that follow. We are actively looking at camp facilities and activities to ensure we have the best and safest environment for socialization and recreation. From our “heart” to yours.

About Our Camping & Recreation Programs
At Easterseals, opportunities for recreation and social interaction are more than just “fun”... the many benefits they provide are a necessary part of maintaining a healthy state of mind and lifestyle for everyone.
The importance of recreational activities has long since been recognized and implemented by Easterseals as an integral part of ALL of the programs and services provided to people of all ages with all disabilities.
- promotes relationship building
- teaches acceptance through group participation
- builds confidence and self esteem by conquering fears
- provides exposure to new experiences and places
- provides opportunities for self-determination
- breaks down barriers of unfamiliarity and stigma
- reduces disability-related health complications
All of these things are a crucial part of achieving the healthiest and best quality of life with the same equality, dignity and independence we all strive for.
