Celebrating Abilities and Making Possibilities at Springfield College
Join us Feb. 17-21 for Winter C.A.M.P.
Winter C.A.M.P. (Celebrating Abilities and Making Possibilities) provides opportunities for engaging in meaningful activities and building life skills in a fun and supportive environment for young adults, ages 18 to 22, who are transitioning out of special education services into adulthood.
Participants will make friends as they check out our dining hall, events, activities, and fitness complex. They’ll also experience a residence hall, cook some meals, and explore different hobbies and interests.
The program runs for five days and includes one overnight stay on the Springfield College campus.
Participants will work with student mentors who are in their final academic semester of the Master of Science occupational therapy program. Faculty members from the Department of Occupational Therapy will supervise the graduate students in the planning and execution of activities.
