Camping & Recreation

CAMPING
Goodwill Easterseals coordinates a week-long camping experience for children and adults with disabilities at Easterseals Camp ASCCA, a totally-accessible facility.  The Mobile Rotary Children’s Foundation provides financial sponsorship for the tuition costs for 100 campers to attend each summer.  A smaller group of youth with disabilities from the Florida Panhandle are sponsored by Publix.  Week-end camps coordinated by GES are provided for children with Autism and their families and Post-Polio survivors and caregivers.

 

RECREATION

Goodwill Easterseals provides young people with disabilities with recreational outlets to improve physical fitness, social skills, and connections with their community.  One outlet is a special needs cheer squad which performs for exhibitions and competitions at venues along the Gulf Coast.  Other recreational opportunities include dances, movie nights, and local family outings.
