Participants start out on a specialized adapted bike and gradually progress to a two-wheeled bicycle by the week’s end.

Bike Camp is $75 per camper for the week, and we also have a refresher course for returning campers for $25. This year’s Bike Camp will be held at the Downey High School small gym; Monday through Friday, July 15th-19th.

Cool off from the heat with our Water Ski program!

The weather sure is heating up and we have the perfect way to help cool you down: water ski! Our water ski program is for individuals with diverse abilities to have an exhilarating experience out on the water. With the help of trained volunteers and adaptive equipment, there are very few disabilities that would prevent participation in the sport of water skiing.

There are 5 dates to choose from for this water skiing season, so choose one that best suits you. All water ski sessions are held at the Modesto Reservoir in Waterford.
