As spring gradually gives way to summer, we’re all looking forward to an abundance of sunshine and spending more time outside. With students and teachers taking a much-needed break from school and the approach of warmer weather and longer days, there is much to appreciate about summer. Why not maximize the extra free time by basking in the fresh air and enjoying all that the season has to offer?

One exciting way to make the most of summertime is to enroll in a summer camp or program, opening up a host of opportunities to try something different, form friendships and build new skills. Very Special Camps makes summer fun accessible for all by providing an in-depth guide to the programs available in every state, with options spanning across a broad range of disabilities and unique interest areas.

The website outlines disability-friendly camps to suit any individual in any region of the country. Alabama, for instance, has Camp ASCCA, which offers campers a wide variety of traditional recreational and educational activities with a unique design for accessibility.

From horseback riding and fishing to music, theater and crafting, there are countless ways to have fun in the sun at camp, regardless of ability level. What’s more, many programs offer individuals with disabilities the valuable chance to connect with like-minded peers who share similar ideas and experiences.

Check out the extensive online list of cool camps in your area and take the time to read about them—there might just be one that strikes your interest.
