This year we’re celebrating the history, diversity, and teamwork of the Olympics. One of the best things about going to summer camp is trying new activities and doing things you’ve never done before. Small numbers in each activity offer the children opportunities to learn skills in cooperation.
Middle and High School Students are welcome to join our online support group. YOU ONLY NEED TO REGISTER ONCE to get monthly reminders. We'll meet at 7:30 pm on the 1st Tuesday of each month unless stated otherwise. You will receive a Zoom invitation by email and if you enter a mobile number below you will get a text prior to the meeting. You'll only need to sign up once - we'll remind you each month unless you ask to be removed from the mailing list.
Each month we'll have a main topic to discuss.

Work is of value to many people to provide for their basic needs, increase self-esteem, improve mental and physical health as well as enhance overall quality of life. Businesses have discovered that many people with disabilities who bring talent to the workplace are an untapped labor pool and they are working to improve their outreach, recruitment, hiring and retention of employees with disabilities. This session will provide information to people with disabilities and their family members about how Disability:IN Greater Kansas City is working in partnership with the business community to help them employ more people with disabilities and how people with disabilities can prepare for their future job.
“iCan Swim” is a unique 5-day summer program experience to give individuals with disabilities the self-confidence and the foundation for safely enjoying an aquatic environment, and promotes as much independent movement in the water as possible. The iCan Swim program is not aquatic therapy, rather a program to enjoy the water as a leisure recreational activity, increasing quality of life and inclusion among peers and family.
Each swimmer participating in “iCan Swim” will focus on their own unique goals.
