Looking back on my childhood, some of my favorite memories were made during summer camp. Between arts and crafts, playing sports and making new friends, camp was always the highlight of my summer.
Since 1976, Alabama’s Easterseals Camp ASCAA gives adults and children with disabilities the full summer camp experience in a safe environment. Campers get to partake in activities such as horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, fishing, arts and crafts, and hiking just to name a few. The camp’s mission is to help individuals with disabilities achieve equality, dignity, and maximum independence—while giving campers an unforgettable experience.
No matter what your summer plans are, I hope they are filled with loved ones, good memories and unforgettable experiences. If you’ve ever attended Easterseals Camp, or a camp with a similar mission, Enable Alabama would love to hear from you about your favorite camp memories.
