The Y promotes and provides access to healthy lifestyles for all children and adults, including those with disabilities. Through positive recreational experiences, we emphasize each person’s abilities and individuality and help participants build social skills. YMCA Adaptive Sports programs are designed so that youth with diverse needs can experience building skills, confidence and friendships through sports.
Sports come together in this super fun program! We will practice our beginner skills in a variety of sports and activities with our friends. Adaptive sports are designed to be inclusive and welcoming to all.
This camp is designed for teens and young adults with disabilities. Participants should be mainly independent in completing activities, and able to communicate needs to camp staff and volunteers.
“Whether we’re in the gym, in the pool or on the field, through adaptive sports programs, we hope to bring our community together and recognize all as equal.”
