Summer is a great time for children with limb loss to meet and socialize with other kids of similar abilities. Summer camps and adaptive programs also give kids an opportunity to try new sports and activities in an environment specially designed just for them.
Here are some options to consider this summer and for future planning:
Camp No Limits not only provides adaptive summer camps for children with limb loss, they also focus on education, mentorship, and support for the whole family. They are nationwide with 10 locations: Maine, Missouri, Connecticut, Maryland, Florida, Idaho, California, Arizona, and Texas. They offer a daily schedule of activities within four programs: Education & Therapy, Sports & Recreation, Creative Arts & Music, and Evening Programs.
Adventure Amputee Summer Camp is held in Bryson City, North Carolina. Their mission is “to encourage children with amputations or limb differences to stretch their potential and imagination, and explore all that is possible.”
