Children and adults with physical challenges are given the opportunity to participate in many different sports in a supportive environment, coached and mentored by several world-class, paralympic athletes. Individuals will be amazed and encourged by doing things they never thought possible, while building relationships with others who face similar challenges. Overall, campers are encouraged, given hope, and reminded of God's love and purpose for their lives.  If you have not attended Wheelchair before and disabled less than 12 years old, we recommend you attend Wheelchair Family Camp.
