Camp PossAbility is a one-week summer camp that serves young adults with physical disabilities. We are raising funds for our 2017 camp week.

About the campaign
Camp PossAbility is a one-week summer camp that serves 18-35-year-olds with physical disabilities. These young adults use adapted equipment (wheelchairs, canes, crutches, or walkers), and have a typical high school diploma. We are based out of Fort Wayne, Indiana, and hold camp at Bradford Woods in Martinsville, Indiana.
Camp PossAbility is the only camp of its exact kind in the United States because of the age and developmental level we serve. It is also a week-long camp, which sets it apart from weekend retreats.
After establishing Camp PossAbility in 2014, our first week of camp was held in August 2015. This past summer, campers and volunteers attended from 10 different states, so the word is quickly spreading! Our camp is a place of growth, healing, and development of lifelong, supportive relationships.
Camp PossAbility is run entirely by volunteers and gets its funding from grants and private donations. Our largest grantor is the AWS Foundation in Fort Wayne, Indiana. In 2016, Camp PossAbility was also awarded a grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
By making a purchase or donation through this campaign, you will be playing an integral role in the 2017 camp season, and changing the lives of our campers. Thank you for your support!
