Bowling Green Parks and Rec hosts camp for adults with disabilities

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Bowling Green Parks and Rec is hosting New Adventure Camp for adults with disabilities this week.

The camp is a free day program for adults ages 18-35 who have intellectual or physical disabilities.

The campers spent the earlier part of the week touring Western Kentucky University, tie-dying, playing with robots, making pottery and more. They will end the week with off with a talent show.

While there are many summer camps for children with disabilities, New Adventure Camp is a fun experience for people who have aged out of other camps.

A second session of New Adventure Camp for adults will run in July.

Parks and Rec also hosts Camp Happy Days – a camp that will serve 100 children with disabilities. Like New Adventure Camp, Camp happy days also has two sessions, each running three weeks with 50 kids. Though their first June session is full, people can still apply to their July session.
