Good News Friday!

Imagine!’s Out & About team is gearing up for another Summer Camp for school aged kids with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Out & About's Summer Camp offers ten weeks of full days, from 8:00 until 5:00 Monday through Friday, and is available to children ages 7 - 21.

Activities include fishing, equine assisted opportunities, art exploration, swimming, movement, sports and games, gardening, as well as lots of scheduled field trips to local venues such as Water World, Elitch Gardens and the Wildlife Experience. The goal is to provide 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.

A vital step in the preparation process is to create t-shirts for staff members, and each year the Out & About groups use different color shirts to create a sense of excitement and camaraderie for the team. This year, the crew went tie-dye! It looks like the team is pumped up and really looking forward to another successful summer.

This short video demonstrates why the O & A team is so eager for Summer Camp to begin.
