Camp activities can provide a variety of experiences for people with disabilities. These activities include, but are not limited to swimming, boating, arts-n-crafts, recreational games, camp songs and nature study. We also offer adaptive learning opportunities such as kayaking, canoeing and sporting events that offer campers skills to carry on into their daily living recreational choices. Camp CaPella offers a relaxed setting in which campers can experience social interaction opportunities, create lasting friendships with peers, and meet or exceed personal goals they may have for themselves prior to coming to camp. All our activities always have the importance of safety and consideration for others in mind. Call for more information or details on these exciting offerings at Camp CaPella!

A Sample Outline of a Day at Camp:

Our daily schedule has a balance of large group and small group activities where campers will work together and independently in areas around the camp. Everyday has the opportunity for swimming, boating, and kayaking or just relaxing outside.

In our Wild Adventures building, campers will discover, create and experiment with different themed activities guided by our Wild Adventures Leader. These activities will have a strong focus on STEM and our counselors will be sure that each camper is met at their individual level to be successful and have fun! A highlight of each week in our Wild Adventures building is our paper mache VOLCANO!

In the Lodge, campers will work on fun themed arts and craft projects. Our Lodge Leader will work with each camper to create something amazing and always has some fun surprises along the way. Each week we kick off our lodge program with a Tie Dye Project for the campers to wear on Friday

Our recreation program gives campers the opportunity to be active and get outside. Our themed activities are carefully designed to allow campers of all abilities to be engaged in FUN! Our Recreation Leader sets up fun relay races, messy games, water balloon fights and the ever popular DRIP DRIP DROP.
