Kids with Cerebral Palsy make Wheelchair Art at Camp Independence

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Camp Independence, run by St. Louis Children's Hospital with help from Carol and Paul Hatfield, is the only sports camp in the nation created specifically for children with cerebral palsy. The camp allows children who use wheelchairs or walkers to move to learn that they, too, can participate in all the same activities that their schoolmates do. During one session, the kids participated in 'wheelchair art,' where they used their wheelchairs, walkers or their feet to paint tracks or prints across a giant canvas.
