For the 31st year, 100 local children and adults with disabilities will depart from Goodwill Easterseals’ Gordon Smith Campus, Sunday, July 26th, for a week-long camping adventure sponsored through a generous donation from the Mobile Rotary Club.
The campers will attend Easterseals’ Camp ASCCA (Alabama Special Camp for Children and Adults), the largest barrier-free camp facility in the nation. Located in Jackson’s Gap, Alabama, on Lake Martin, Camp ASCCA offers campers a wide variety of recreational and educational activities. Camper activities include horseback riding, fishing, tubing, swimming, environmental education, arts and crafts, canoeing, a “splash pad,” outdoor adventure elements such as a zip-line, and much more. Campers of all abilities can participate in everything from water skiing to horseback riding.
Campers and their families arrive at Goodwill Easterseals, located at 2440 Gordon Smith Drive, at 9am to begin the registration process and are scheduled to load the buses for Camp ASCCA at 12pm. Campers will return at 1:30 on Friday, July 31st.
The Mobile Rotary Club has been a long-time financial sponsor of the event. Goodwill Easterseals coordinates the trip each year and sends support staff to assist the campers and staff of Easterseals’ Camp ASCCA. The investment made by Mobile Rotary Club helps create a positive, fun, barrier-free experience in an environment where appropriate supports, adaptations, and accommodations are possible.
With deepest gratitude from all those we serve, thank you to the members of Mobile Rotary Club for your support and for sending campers to a place where anything is possible for them.
