WAVE Camp is a program of the City of Sacramento, Department of Parks and Recreation, Access Leisure section, in partnership with CSUS, Disabled Sports USA, and United Cerebral Palsy.

WAVE Camp is based at California State University Sacramento and is open to children 10 to 25 years old with physical disabilities. Disabilities include: Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Amputee, Spinal Cord Injury, Muscular Dystrophy, and other orthopedic impairments. Campers participate in purposeful fitness, recreational, competitive and social activities such as water skiing, kayaking, swimming and scuba diving. This summer adventure camp is designed to provide instructional and recreational aquatic opportunities to youth and young adults. If you would like more information on this program, please contact Jenny Yarrow at (916) 808-6017.

WAVE Camp runs from July 6th to July 16th, 2009.  When the state legislature passes the budget, it is a near certainty that 47 of these campers will loose 100% of the funds that have previously been available to them to attend this life changing residential aquatics camp.  As this vote may very well come at the final hour, we simply can not wait to ask for assistance to secure this camping opportunity.
