Join us on campus this summer for a grant-funded summer camp, specifically for youth with disabilities. During this summer camp, you will have fun developing skills to act, communicate and improve both self-esteem and confidence. You will also get to play the part of a health care provider and learn self-advocacy as a patient.

Seats are limited, and preference will be given to early applicants. Check back regularly to apply when registration opens.
