Summer Learning Program: Easterseals Eastern Pennsylvania - Growing Green Summer Camp
Easterseals Camp Growing Green is a week-long (Sunday-Friday) overnight camp held in the Poconos for children (age 10 and older) and adults with disabilities. Growing Green campers gain environmental awareness and learn organic gardening in specially designed gardens while also enjoying traditional camp activities like hiking, canoeing, sports, arts & crafts, campfires and swimming. An optional employment track is available for campers who want to explore work experiences.

Overnight camp provides incredible opportunities for growth and development in a safe, nurturing environment staffed by Easterseals trained counselors. You can rest easy knowing your family member is in the care of compassionate, qualified individuals. Reconnecting with old friends, making new ones and getting along in a group are situations that require campers to practice communication skills, flexibility, cooperation and compromise. These critical skills are essential to success in school and at work. Living away from family members and with peers helps campers discover their inner resources and builds self-esteem.

Campers sign up for one or more weeks.
