WINDHAM, N.Y. – The Adaptive Sports Foundation will be conducting its two Multi-Sport Summer Camps next week, August 17-20 and the week after, August 24-27.
“We’re looking forward to seeing all of the participants and all the excitement they have participating in the events,” Summer Camp Program Manager Russ Funk said.
The ASF uses local facilities and businesses to truly make this a multi-sport camp, as the students are scheduled to participate in outdoor activities at Camp Oh-Neh-Tah and CD Lane Park. Some highlights the ASF has to offer its participants are lake activities, hiking, mountain biking, soccer and much more. The participants will also spend some time at Christman’s Golf Resort, where they’ll get to learn some putting skills, hit the driving range and play a few holes on their valley course.
“Some of our most popular events are hiking and kayaking. The students definitely love the kayaking,” Funk explained. “Personally, I think my favorite is the hiking. That seems to be the one that everybody can participate in and they have the most fun doing.”
A new feature that’s happening this year is a visit to a local alpaca farm, where participants can feed and interact with the animals. In the event of poor weather, the ASF will have arts and crafts activities indoors.
Campers are encouraged to bring a bathing suit, a towel, proper footwear, snacks, a bagged lunch and any other personal items that may be needed during the day.
Each day starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. with a lunch at 11:30 a.m. There are still open spots available for both Multi-Sport Summer Camps. For more information, or to sign up for fun in the outdoors, click here.
