New Orleans Nonprofit Camp Able Focuses On Abilities, Not Disabilities

NEW ORLEANS – Camp Able is specifically designed for young campers, aged 10 and up, with special needs. It is not about disabilities, but abilities, reps said.

From Wednesday, July 26 – Sunday, July 30, Camp Able offers activities from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. including dancing, arts and crafts, nature adventure, a water slide, games, a pool day, trips to the amusement park in City Park and the Audubon Aquarium, a second line and a must see talent show on Saturday, July 29 at 1:00 p.m.

         Camp Able’s goal is to establish a community of unconditional love, compassion and acceptance, reps said. Each camper is dedicated their own counselor.

         With 25 campers and growing, Camp Able has more than doubled in size since its inaugural year in 2016.
