Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation Hosts Camp Adventure in Albuquerque

Camp Adventure is the only fully inclusive and adaptive summer camp for children with physical disabilities in central New Mexico.  Children with physical disabilities simply do not have the same opportunities to attend summer camp as their typically developing peers.

July 18, 2016 – One of the most exciting times of the year for the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation (CTHF) is when we get to host Camp Adventure.

Camp Adventure, which took place from July 13th-24th at La Cueva High School, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is one of two fully inclusive summer camps provided by the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation for children in NM with Physical Disabilities. (The other is Camp Inspiration in San Juan County also provided by CTHF). Campers participated in activities ranging from Adaptive Cycling to water balloon fights and a talent how.  Campers also participated in Adaptive Kayaking at Sandia Lakes and attended an Isotopes Baseball Game.  Over 60 volunteers came out to support the campers and make camp happen – a big thanks to all our volunteers!

“Camp changed my life. Seeing these kids interact with one another, just being kids and having fun together was amazing. For me, this is the work of the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation, it is why we do what we do!” – Jo Ann Habing, CTHF Family Liaison.
