"Camp Ahwaga is my daughter's weapon against falling further behind her typical classmates each summer." "My son is the square peg trying to be forced into the round hole at school, so to have a place that excites him about learning and accepts him for who he is, what a blessing." --These are comments from parents of Camp Ahwaga campers.
We are a non-profit summer educational and recreational day program designed for children with disabilities of Tioga County, New York. For nearly 30 years, we have transformed kids with disabilities into campers whose disabilities take a back seat to exploration and learning through play. The camp is entirely free, which is priceless for families often facing financial burdens from their child's health issues.
Unfortunately, our typical donations have fallen short just as necessary costs (minimum wage, etc.) have increased. We need your help to ensure that the campers of the future will have the same great experiences as the campers who went before them. Please consider making a donation. No amount is too small and every amount makes a difference.
