1 :1 SPECIALIZED CAMP.
In response to a growing number of campers with reduced mobility we wanted to offer a program that suited your wants out of a vacation.
More time at each activity, less distance between each and most importantly a 1:1 counselor to camper ratio to ensure that you can make the most of your vacation at Grotonwood.
This vacation at Grotonwood enables adults with disabilities to have fun, unwind and meet new friends. All campers will stay in Prescott Lodge where each room has it's own private bathroom, air conditioning, zero threshold showers, two beds, and wifi. Each day is tailored by our program staff to include the best balance of action and relaxation. Typical activities include archery, hay cart rides, pontoon boat tours, crafts, singing in chapel, soaking up the rays and swimming in the lake, tubing, karaoke, talent shows, fishing, team games and so much more. Don't forget to bring your dancing shoes and best clothes as each week we celebrate the end of an amazing vacation with a formal banquet and dance.
