Rising Above Disabilities (RAD), a large camp for adults and children with developmental disabilities in Southern California, is hosting its first-ever fully remote summer program. In order to keep campers and counselors safe, RAD Camp is transforming their in-person curriculum to a totally online format so all attendees, ages 4 to 60 plus, can participate virtually.
The weeklong summer session incorporates significant all-day 1:1 counselor interaction, team bonding opportunities, and educational activities, as well as nightly entertainment. RAD Camp’s virtual summer session is filled with a vibrant mix of pre-recorded and live content.
Before the summer session, all pre-registered campers will receive a “RAD Box,” which is a fully instructional support package. The package was created by two highly-trained special education teachers with easy-to-follow instructions, a guide book on navigating the box and online training, themed materials, and all supplies necessary to complete each activity for each day of camp they join.
After a combined 30 years of volunteering and serving people with special needs, Camp Directors Katie Webb and Meghan Clem, with the guidance of the Board of Directors, founded Rising Above Disabilities Camp. RAD is a volunteer run non-profit organization for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Based in Orange County, California, RAD Camp has developed into one of largest camps for individuals with disabilities in Southern California.
