Good News Friday!

Today is the final day of Imagine!’s Out & About Summer Camp 2010. The program is designed for school aged kids and has a stated goal of providing a sense of acceptance and self among peers, to enhance participant’s quality of life through the development of socialization skills and coordination skills and to promote community integration.

This year’s program was a great success. Out & About staff members served more than 50 Boulder and Broomfield county families. The kids had a great summer and were able to experience a variety of activities in the community including therapeutic horseback riding, trips to Water World and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, and outdoor activities including fishing and canoeing.

Out & About staff members aren’t resting on their laurels, however. Instead, they are gearing up for the start of their After School Program.

I want to congratulate the entire Out & About staff for their continued dedication to ensuring that school aged children with one or more developmental disabilities have opportunities to fully engage in their communities.
