Enhancing the lives of adults with developmental disabilities through recreation, socialization and life skills education.
We’re celebrating our 5th anniversary! Click here for 5 ways to support us!
Camp Blue Skies provides 5-day, 4-night overnight camps for adults with developmental disabilities, including Down syndrome and mild to moderate Autism.
We rent existing camps in the off-season to provide these opportunities in Georgia, Ohio and North Carolina.
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 to enhance their interests and abilities while developing their social skills.
