Are their any day or overnight camps available for teenagers with disabilities in the region ?

Camp Shriver is a free, one-week, Special Olympics day camp program offered in New Hanover County that gives children and young adults with disabilities the opportunity to experience the joy of summer camp. Camp Shriver is four sessions—each session for different age groups. Daily activities include arts and crafts, bowling, games, physical fitness activities, special guest visits, picnics and swimming. Space is limited, and registration is first come, first served. Sessions for 2016:

  • Session I, 6/20 – 6/24 (campers age 8 – 15 years)
  • Session II, 6/27 –7/1 (campers age 15 – 21 years)
  • Session III, 7/11 – 7/15 (campers 21 years & Older)
  • Session IV, 7/18 – 7/22 (campers 21 years & Older)

For a registration form, email Tiffany Lesley, the lead program coordinator, at Tiffany.Lesley@wilmingtonnc.gov.
