Adaptive Recreation Camp is for campers who need more support than a traditional summer camp can provide. Campers will participate in a variety of activities to include outdoor adventures, games, field trips, arts, crafts and more. Open to City and County residents. Participants must be independent in personal care, will be expected to manage their own behaviors with minimal staff intervention and must have a desire to participate in programming.

Campers requiring 1:1 assistance are welcome with their own aide who serves as a volunteer and must adhere to department volunteer policies/procedures, which may include completion of a criminal background check. Acceptance to Adaptive Recreation Summer Camps is based on a review by the Adaptive Recreation Manager and Camp Director.
