Special Olympics Kansas Camp Shriver

Special Olympics Kansas Camp Shriver

Camp Shriver is a free program through Special Olympics International that demonstrates social inclusion for athletes with intellectual disabilities (ID). The camp works with youth from within Wyandotte County to provide access to sports, experiences, events and learning that the campers do not have access to during a typical summer. Access to these experiences are often denied due to many factors including financial burden, access to facilities or acceptance of individuals with ID. Camp Shriver for Wyandotte County will focus on providing this service to area Kansas City, Kansas school children as well as providing an atmosphere for learning social, emotional and physical skills.

“When I'm at camp, I feel like a normal kid. Some kids don't get to go outside because our parents are just working too much and too hard. At home, I'm just watching movies all day. I don't want to get too old to come to Wildwood.”

“Without the support of Camps for Kids and the matching fund, CHD Families would be unable to provide a free medically supervised summer camp for kids with Congenital Heart Defects.”

“I look back on the struggle of my childhood and one of the most important and best childhood memories I have include the time spent at camp with the amazing men and women who treated me like I was normal despite my struggle”
