FAQS – Jr. Wheelchair Sports Camp
Jr. Wheelchair Sports Camp is designed for children (ages 4 to 18) with a permanent physical disability such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, amputation, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injury, etc. The sports camp most benefits an individual with some use of their arms to push a wheelchair but we are able to accommodate in the case of limited ability. Please contact Jon Richards, Program Director at (619) 336-2764 to discuss your child’s individual needs. We are always looking for more campers so please let your friends know about this wonderful opportunity.
Children with a physical disability can often walk with braces, canes or crutches and don’t use a wheelchair on a daily basis. However, they may lack the ability to fully participate in regular sports because they cannot run and jump as quickly as their able bodied counterparts. One way to participate in adaptive sports is to use a wheelchair or other adaptive equipment. Many of our campers walk during their day at school but come to our programs and play fast and furiously in the world of adaptive sports using a wheelchair. We have specially designed sports wheelchairs for our campers to use while they are at camp and throughout the year if they participate in our year round programs.
Yes, we have professional nursing staff available throughout the day for first aide and other medical needs. Our nursing staff also handles medications and assistance in toileting.
Yes, we encourage campers who are not able to push their own wheelchair or need extra assistance with personal needs to bring their own aide or attendant. These aides must be at least 16 years old and must complete all of the waivers for our camp.
Campers ages are 4 to 18. Campers are placed in groups based on age and, for teen campers, by gender. If your child is outside that age range and you think they should participate please contact Jon Richards, Program Director at (619) 336-2764 to discuss your child’s individual needs.
Camp runs five days, Tuesday through Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Yes, scholarships are available to any camper with financial need. We never deny participation to any athlete because of an inability to pay. Please request our scholarship form when you apply or call (619) 336-9571 for more information.
We prefer that campers be given the opportunity to experience camp on their own. We find that this provides them the extra degree of independence that we are working towards. Our counselors, coaches, nurses and volunteers are well experienced in the needs of campers with physical disabilities and should be able to handle any situation that arises. If your child requires an attendant because of particular issues then you may arrange to participate in that way. On Saturday we invite the whole family to come and watch while your camper demonstrates all that they have learned over the week, showing their new skills, friendships and independence.
On the final day of camp, Saturday, August 11, we invite the whole family to come and watch their camper demonstrate all that they have learned over the week, showing their new skills, friendships and independence. There are sports rotations in the morning, followed by a barbecue lunch for everyone and a closing ceremony presentation of sports demonstrations and a power point photo display of highlights from the camp.
