The Explorer’s Summer Day Camp in Boone is underway for the 2017 season.
Starting in 2009, the Explorer’s Program was created to provide an organized program that would provide a safe, structured environment for children with disabilities during the months when they are not in school-based programs. Participants are referred through case managers, social workers and school teachers. Any child with disabilities under the age of 18 in Boone County is eligible to apply for the camp.
The camp staff work on goals that are specifically created for each child so that they can keep up and continue progress in social, academic and interpersonal areas.
This year’s Explorer’s program is as full of life as any other year. Campers are participating in a number of events such as: visits to the police and fire stations, swimming at the Boone Community Pool, picnics, games at Fort Frenzy, crafts, movies and so many other activities. Explorer’s meet every Mon., Wed. and Fri. through the summer.
A program like this could not be done without support from our community partners and monetary support from grants and our great donors.
