Working collaboratively with schools, local service providers, and several community agencies and nonprofit organizations, the students will then plan and implement a two-week long program for children with disabilities. The camp will include horseback riding, art experiences, science, technology, sports, and other enrichment activities. Themed activities will fill each day, culminating in a family carnival.
