“This week-long camp has allowed Emma to fully participate in many fun sports and recreational activities that she had not been able to up to this point.”


Her favorite activities at Camp Abilities include goalball and gymnastics but she really loves everything the week has to offer.  I have noticed that Emma is more confident in her daily life and she has the desire to continue to practice the skills she has learned at camp. I am so thankful to have found this opportunity for Emma. Camp Abilities is Emma’s favorite camp Hands Down!” – Jean Olech, Parent of EmmaGrace,  from Camp Abilities Texas

“Camp Abilities has made a massive impact on my life…”


Through working at Camp I have been able to develop my creativity, problem solving skills, and leadership skills in tremendous ways. It has given me a unique skill set as an Adapted PE teacher and offered a way for me to make connections, engage with other professionals in my field and build lifelong friendships. I am incredibly grateful for the impact that Camp Abilities has had on my life!
