ACHIEVE, BELIEVE, LEARN, AND EXPERIENCE WITH CAMP A.B.L.E.
Ages: 8-14 years
Camp A.B.L.E. is an adapted summer camp experience designed for youth with disabilities. For nearly 30 summers, this unique camp has set the precedent for Therapeutic Recreation camps to be modeled after throughout Southeast Michigan.
Participants take part in a variety of activities throughout the day, interacting with their peers, enhancing social skills, reinforcing gross and fine motor skills, and gaining independence.
Camp operates Monday-Friday from mid-June to mid-August. Each week consists of three field trips, two days of special activities at the camp site. Participants may register for individual days of camp.
Please be advised that space is limited.
