Look what I get to do!

In the next few weeks I get to volunteer with some pretty neat people at these two camps in Topeka! Check it out!

Camp Pals ---This camp is designed for the adult with developmental delays that requires adapted instruction. The campers can experience traditional (and some non-traditional) day camp activities that are adapted when necessary and presented in an ability and age appropriate manner. We'll take fun field trips and complete challenging activities in a supportive atmosphere. Basically, I get to spend a week with some pretty cool people!

Lose the Training Wheels---"Lose the Training Wheels" is a unique summer camp experience to give children with disabilities the self confidence to learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle. Using specialized equipment, coaching and encouragement, children will "lose the training wheels." For children with disabilities, learning to ride a bicycle has many benefits, such as increased confidence and self-esteem, inclusion with peers, independent transportation, and most important, increased quality of life through recreation. Everyday I'll partner with a special little one and we'll work together to learn how to ride a bike!

I wasn't able to upload the video on my blog so here's the link for the website. Scroll down the page and there is a link for a video. You should really check it out :)
