Camp Shriver - where children can learn and play... as equals!
Today, children with disabilities are included in our schools, neighborhoods and communities. But what does inclusion really mean?
At Camp Shriver, inclusion means that every camper can learn and play together--every time and at every activity!
That's why for 14 years, Camp Shriver at the University of Massachusetts Boston has welcomed over 1400 children, 50% with and 50% without intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 8-12, from low income families in the Boston area to a free inclusive summer recreational camp.
Camp Shriver serves an equal number of children with and without disabilities so that all children can play and learn—as equals.
All the funds raised by our fantastic Team Camp Shriver members will directly support over 120 children at camp this summer or in our school year program, Saturday Camp. With your support, and the support of these amazing indviduals running 26.2 miles for children with disabilities, we will makle sure that all children have an opportunity to play and learn together this summer!
Camp Shriver’s mission is to bring children with and without disabilities together to provide opportunities for social and motor development, while promoting positive peer relationships among campers.
