Quality of Life Grants: 2nd Cycle 2008: Actively Achieving
Child & Family Services of Eastern Virginia
dba The Up Center
Camp Horizon is a summer camp (with daily and sleepover sessions) run by The Up Center that provides a full therapeutic recreation experience to children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities. The camp serves individuals with a very broad range of needs including full paralysis, other mobility limitations, and mental challenges. A very high counselor-to-camper ratio assures safety as campers participate in indoor and outdoor activities, swimming, and field trips. Grant funds will support counselor stipends. This grant was funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
