Dr. Gainer just recently provided me with a pamphlet published by the NSCD, National Sports Center for the Disabled, which lists the outdoor therapeutic recreation activities they are offering for the summer of 2008. This agency has trained instructors and is able to make accommodations for individuals with many types of disabilities – ranging from emotional, to cognitive or physical.
NSCD offers one-day sports introductory clinics called AbilityCAMPS, which are free; as well as half-day & day adventures – ranging from $16 to $125; and Summer Camps that last anywhere from 2 to 4 days – also at a fee. The range of activities offered is impressive. Whether your interest is Camping, horseback riding, mountain biking, sports, or hiking – they have something for you.
NSCD also offers scholarships; the scholarship deadline for the summer season is Tuesday, April 1, 2008.
