Enhancing the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities
through recreation, socialization and education.

Camp Blue Skies provides 5 day/4 night overnight camps for adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities, including mild to moderate Down syndrome and Autism. In addition to the many recreational and outdoor activities available to our campers, we offer learning activities to address individual independence. Campers have opportunities to challenge themselves in a safe environment in order to enhance their interests and abilities while further developing their social skills.
