Camp Shriver- where children can learn and play....as equals!
We are so lucky to live in a nation where children with disabilities are included in our schools, in our communities and in our lives. But Camp Shriver takes this step further. Inclusion is good... equal is better!
That is why for the past decade, Camp Shriver at the University of Massachusetts Boston has welcome over 1,000 children, half with and half without disabilities, ages 8-12, from low-income families in the Boston area to a free inclusive summer sports 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 sending over 100 children to camp this summer. With your support, and the support of these amazing individuals running the 26.2 miles for children with disabilities, we will make 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.
