Special Needs Family Camping

YMCA Camp Grady Spruce chooses one weekend each spring and each fall to devote to families that have children with disabilities, the most common including Aspergers, Autism and Down Syndrome. Our goal is to pull families out of their usual world and create an environment where your entire family can enjoy the outdoors, each other, and even other families with similar interests and lifestyles. Families are welcome to invite whoever they want. This is a family event, siblings, and all are invited! 

Register here for the Spring Special Needs Family Camping Weekend!
