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.
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.
KALEIDOSCOPE DAY PROGRAM
Kaleidoscope is a program of Goodwill Easterseals for younger adults who have recently transitioned out of high school and other non-senior adults who desire to remain active and engaged in structured daytime learning and recreational activities. Our goal is to help adults with developmental and/or other disabilities to enhance skills and characteristics important to personal growth, happiness and self-sufficiency through meaningful and challenging group activities.
