For children, teens and young adults – ages 3 to 21.
Camps are jam-packed with fun at WDSRA!

Days are spent enjoying sports, games, crafts, swimming and more. You’ll love our camps because through all the fun your camper is developing social skills, motor skills and community awareness. Your child’s camp experience is sure to be memorable.

Program Segments

After summer school ends head on over to camp for some summer fun! WDSRA have teamed up with select school districts to offer a full afternoon of recreation after summer school ends. Transportation is included.



Benefits & Highlights

  • Camps offer a fun yet structured environment to bridge school breaks. From holiday break to spring break, or multiple weeks throughout the summer, camps are a great way to keep active on days off!
  • While camps do not include book-learning, the learning continues with social skills building, following directions and decision-making.
  • Our camp staff members are selected based upon their previous recreation experiences, as well as their previous experiences with children and teens with disabilities. WDSRA also looks at their creativity, enthusiasm, and desire to learn.
  • All camp staff and volunteers receive camp-specific orientation, in addition to training on WDSRA’s policies and procedures. Topics include, but are not limited to: information on various disabilities, behavior management strategies, camp planning and activity adaptation, assistive communication, medication procedures, and emergency procedures.
