Camp Cairn / Discovery
Woodland is excited to announce a new focus camp for 2018 - Camp Discovery, a free weekend respite camp for children with intellectual disabilities. Camp Discovery will be held on the grounds of Woodland at our Heritage Camp on August 17-19, 2018. This overnight residential program will provide the opportunity for students to enjoy traditional camp activities in a fun environment and will be led by certified professionals and trained volunteers. Children age 13-22, with a high school graduation year of 2018 or later are welcome to apply.
The individuals who will participate in this camp program will have varying types of intellectual disabilities. These students could have medical diagnoses of down syndrome, cerebral palsy, chromosomal abnormalities, and/or Traumatic Brain injuries. Children with these types of disabilities can also have speech impairments, visual impairments, hearing impairments, and physical limitations, as well as being cognitively delayed. These students need assistance with critical thinking, reasoning, and behavior management. They also have deficits in every day life skills.
