Hot Fun In The Summertime!


For Children With Disabilities

The school
year is almost over and summer camps are right around the corner.  Finding the right camp for your child can be
time consuming, although worth the investment.  But don’t fret!  We have researched for you a
partial list of camps in the state of Oklahoma
who specifically provide an environment for children with disabilities.  We also recommend taking a tour of the
facility, meeting the director and staff and consider your child’s needs before
enrolling in any summer camp program. 
Camps can be a very important part of your child’s development and a fun
way to spend the summer as they learn life skills, explore new interest,
collaboration, living in a community (overnight camps) and pre-vocational skills.
