Therapeutic Summer Camp

Who We Are

Our Therapeutic Summer Camp provides physical, social and cultural enrichment for 50 children aged 3-21, with multiple, severe disabilities, and is the only therapeutic summer camp available to our population in the Low Country.


Our Summer Camp, open to both PACE and non-PACE attendees, challenges participants with extensive physical activity, while at the same time providing necessary individual physical, occupational and speech therapy as identified through a pre-camp evaluation. The impact of our camp is to build substantial and demonstrable life skills and social development of our population.

Community-Based Initiatives

Successfully navigating a power wheelchair around obstacles at the Aquarium, scanning groceries at Publix, or using a communication device to order lunch at a local restaurant, our Community-Based Initiatives let our children practice newly-developed independent living skills in the Charleston community.


By exposing our community to the capabilities and character of our population, we believe we improve the sensitivity and competency of our fellow Charleston citizens. 

For Parents

Caring for children with disabilities is challenging and complex, and at time, overwhelming. Our Summer Camp helps to support working parents during the summer months, allowing  them to remain in the workforce.
