Summer should be filled with fun and growth for all young people. Camp Tumbleweed, which is partially funded by United Way, is a fun-filled summer day camp program designed for teenagers and young adults with disabilities ages 13 to 21 years old in the Oklahoma City metro area.
Camp Tumbleweed offers a fun and safe environment for campers and combines the traditional elements of a camp-games, crafts, and outdoor activities-with opportunities to develop living and employment skills. A planned schedule of recreational, motivational, educational, and social activities include such past field trips as Oklahoma City Zoo, Oklahoma Children’s Theatre, Sam Noble Natural History Museum, Incredible Pizza, the movies, and more. Incidental learning and functional academics are presented in a fun way!
Camp is run by highly experienced staff in the field of disabilities, who work in the Transition School-to-Work program during the academic year.
Camp Tumbleweed’s outdoor activities are conducted at a camp ground nestled in the wooded area located at the Dale Rogers Training Center campus, in Oklahoma City. If you are interested in more information, call (405)946-4489 and ask for the Transition Coordinator, or visit the program’s webpage.
