Week 9: 8/13-8/17 Cooperative Play & Inclusion Week
Play games and solve challenges by working together to achieve success using every person’s unique skill sets and strengths. New this summer, we are working with VISTAS Education Partners (www.vistaseducation.com) to offer Week #9 as inclusion camp in the mornings between 9am-12pm, Monday-Thursday, welcoming campers with disabilities in 3rd-12th grades. Because of VISTA’s specialization in visual impairment, priority will be given to blind/vision impaired campers prior to May 1st. After that date, if space is still available, registration will open for campers with other special needs. Inclusion camp is an opportunity to build relationships between children who often are separated in academic and social settings. Full-day campers will spend the afternoons engaged in special activities and will go swimming on Friday to Crystal Springs Waterpark. Inclusion Camp Coordinator Monique Coleman will handle case-by-case registration, information, and financial assistance for campers with disabilities: Monique@vistaseducation.com
