2013 Summer Adaptive Camp
Year after year, Camp Kayak has received rave reviews from camp participants, families and supporters. This year, adaptive Camp was held the week of June 10-14 and the week of July 15-19. Campers had the opportunity to repeat sessions. Camp Kayak was held during the comfort and cool of mornings from 8:30am-12noon at Texas Rowing Center. Cost of the camp was $150 per person for the week, which included a full-range of fun & stimulating safe activities, including: on-water paddling, games, communication circles, wading/splashing, Barton Creek adventure, meeting new friends, new experiences and opportunities you’ve never had before!
Summer Adaptive Camp is geared for youth (age 13 and up) and young adults with disabilities. Staff to camper ratio is quite small in order to accomodate and individualize the summer Camp experience. Our Camp staff employs safety, fun, excellence and best practices working with youth & young adults with disabilities.

This individualed email communication from the Camp Director, provided complete information on activities, schedule, and information on the who, the what and what to bring-how to prepare for the optimal summer Camp experience, along with questions & answers communications.
