Camper Criteria

  • A camper must have a primary medical diagnosis related to a physical disability.
    • Reason: Camp counselors and volunteers are only trained to assist with children with physical disabilities, they do not receive any training regarding behavioral or other disabilities. Additionally, we believe in the power of people in this community being around a group of peers.
  • A camper must be between the ages of 6 and 17 years old
    • Reason: Kiwanis International insurance only covers kid-focused activities. While we would love to incorporate and involve older people, we cannot take on the liability of doing so without insurance.
  • A camper must be able to communicate basic needs and interests to people they do not know, even if it is non-verbally.
    • Reason: While counselors are present to assist with activities of daily living, they cannot do so on their own. They must be bale to communicate with a camper about their needs to administer proper care.
  • The camper must be able to display safe behavior around others and a willingness to stay with the group.
    • Reason: We do not have the necessary number of counselors to provide one-on-one care for campers in the vast majority of scenarios. Camp is about playing with other people, and campers must be able to interact safely in small groups.
