Camp Blue Skies is celebrating 10 years of providing camps to adults with developmental disabilities and enhancing their lives through recreation, socialization and life skills education. Our camps are held in the spring and fall in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
At Camp Blue Skies, people who are 21 and older with developmental disabilities will enjoy recreational activities indoors and outside, along with lots of fun and friendship. Campers can challenge themselves in a safe environment to enhance their interests and abilities while increasing social skills and confidence. Camp Blue Skies often transforms the lives of this under-served population, parents/caregivers, volunteers, and supporters.
Camp Blue Skies focuses on the camper’s physical, mental and emotional well-being through continued development of a healthy lifestyle and positive social skills. “We hope to provide each camper with fun and adventure through appropriate challenges, and a better understanding of self and others through group living with shared experiences,” said founder Dick Sesler.
Here’s what one parent said about her son’s experience: “He matured and experienced challenges that his overly protective mother had never given him. Even his speech is clearer. I am just amazed. He seems to have a newfound confidence and enthusiasm about life in general and camp, specifically.”
