2024 Summer Camp Independence

DATES: June 10-14, June 17-21, June 24-28, July 8-12, July 15-19, July 22-26

TIME: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

LOCATION: Webster Groves Recreation Complex, 33 E. Glendale, Webster, MO

CAMPERS: Children and young adults with a primary diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy (CP) between the ages of 7-21 years old, functioning at a first-grade level or higher and able to follow directions. Campers must also be able to sit independently or with minimal adaptive support (i.e.-wheelchair).

ACTIVITIES: Camp activities will include adaptive basketball, dance, soccer, martial arts, baseball, swimming, yoga, and more. Participants will receive specialized attention from pediatric therapists in adaptive sports programs designed to challenge campers to increase their activity level, aerobic fitness, strength, and balance in a safe, fun, and rewarding atmosphere. Our program will provide campers the opportunity to experience sports in a whole new dimension. Our goals are to offer a wide variety of adaptive sports options to keep individuals with CP active for life and to help them embrace the concept that health and physical fitness are possible and necessary to maximize INDEPENDENCE.

REGISTRATION: Summer Camp Independence 2024 camper registration will be open from Jan 31-Feb. 28, 2024. Please click on this link to indicate the week(s) that your child would like to attend camp.
