Dell Children’s Adaptive Sports Camp in Partnership with the YMCA of Austin
Camp in Motion is designed for kids ages 5-21 with mild to moderate cerebral palsy, or other similar neurological diagnoses, who have reasonable use of at least one arm and can follow directions. Kids at GMFCS Grade Levels I-IV are welcome as are those at Level V as long as they can use one arm, bring an attendant/nurse and are familiar to the camp program directors.
“The best part is that you see so many smiles, so much joy from the kids. What I saw from my daughter in that experience was amazing. She came home saying she played tennis for the first time and got to do yoga and scored soccer goals. Her self-confidence was raised so much.” -- Camp In Motion Parent
Campers meet Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at the Southwest Family YMCA. Sessions are staffed by the YMCA of Austin and physical and occupational therapists from Dell Children’s Medical Center. Volunteers for the program also include students and faculty from the Austin Community College Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant program, and other members of the local community.
The cost of Camp In Motion is $765 per week. Billing for camp is processed through Dell Children’s Medical Center Patient Accounts through your insurance company, when applicable. Financial assistance and scholarships are available so that every child has the opportunity to attend camp.
