Day on the Farm is for children and kids at heart with diverse abilities. Each participant must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or designated chaperone. The program will not include extremely physical activities, however we encourage you to speak with your physician and ask about any physical limitations; such as horseback riding. In addition, participants do not have to participate in all activities. This is a day for them to enjoy!

Buddy Club @ UCP of Stanislaus County
Jun 28 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Society is pleased to announce that we have partnered with UCP of Stanislaus County to host Buddy Club! Buddy Club is a new monthly program for participants 16 years and older with disabilities, where you can just hang out with your friends. It is a program that is less structured and more about what YOU want to do. We have different activities each month to encourage friendship and socialization with friends and volunteers of comparable age. Some of the activities include karaoke, music and dancing, arts and crafts and many more! We would love to have you join us and see what all the fuss is about!

Water Skiing Unlimited @ Modesto Reservoir
Jun 29 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Water Skiing Unlimited is a water ski program for individuals with diverse abilities. This program provides access to the sport of water skiing for many blind, deaf, paraplegic, quadriplegic and developmentally delayed individuals who would otherwise be denied the opportunity to share in this exhilarating activity. With the help of the trained volunteers and adaptive equipment, there are very few disabilities that would prevent participation in the sport of water skiing. The minimum age to participate is 7 years old.

Adapted Bike Camp @ Downey High School Small Gym
Jul 15 @ 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

Children with a variety of disabilities’ have had success at the camps some of these conditions include down syndrome, mild to moderate autism, mild cerebral palsy, visual impairments, and other developmental delays.

A few basic prerequisites are necessary for success: the child must be ambulatory; the child must have good cardiovascular fitness and the ability to pedal a bicycle for 45 minutes a day for 5 consecutive days; able to keep their feet on the pedals and maintain pedaling; able to keep their hands on the handlebars and turn; able to see sufficiently to avoid obstacles and maintain a path of travel; willing to follow instructions; and motivated to learn to ride. Our experience has shown that behavioral considerations are extremely important a child may be physically able to ride, but if she/he cannot be persuaded to get on the bike and follow our instructions, they may not succeed. We have also found that children 8 years and older tend to do better than younger children, but even more important is how motivated is the child to learn.

The fee is $75 per camper for the week. A refresher course for past campers is available for $25. Limited full and partial scholarships may be available.
