The mission of the SportAbility of Iowa Adapted Sports Camp is to give qualified young people from Iowa, second grade through high school and with various lower limb disabilities, an opportunity to participate in various types of athletic events using a sports wheelchair. The camp promotes wheelchair awareness and provides healthy recreational activities for kids with disabilities. Activities such as wheeling around campus with their teammates to meals, recreational games, other skill activities and pure fun are important for learning. Athletes enjoy traditional camp and recreation activities, while they are improving daily living, sensory-motor-perceptual, strengthening and hand-eye coordination skills.
