From talent shows to pie throwing contests, kids and parents alike love ADEC’s Camp Wy.Not.

Wy. Not spend the summer at camp?

ADEC’s Camp Wy.Not is the only full-summer camp in the Michiana area that serves children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Throughout the summer, campers are given the opportunity to participate in the same summer fun as their peers — from weekly trips to the pool or bowling alley to adventures at Potawatomi Zoo and LoveWay.

Camp Wy.Not is staffed by direct support professionals who are specially trained to meet the unique and diverse needs of individuals with disabilities. This gives families peace of mind while allowing children to experience fun field trips and express themselves through arts and crafts projects while maintaining the academic and interpersonal skills they developed during the school year.

Camp Wy.Not is one of the many programs offered through ADEC’s Family Services program, which provides early intervention and therapeutic services to young children and their families. Without ADEC’s after-school and summer programs, many families would have a difficult time balancing work and care — they would have no respite.

“2018 was our very first year, and we loved it. I’m very impressed. I’ve observed and they give care to every child who needs different things at different times. I don’t leave my son with anyone, but I was comfortable with them. Being home all day makes him bored and restless. This gives him a place to go, structure and a chance to be around peers.”
