"ENWAA, in cooperation with Alegent Health Immanuel Rehabilitation Center and the City of Omaha Parks and Recreation offers a free sports and recreation camp during the summer for disabled children ages 6-18. This camp provides a good introduction to wheelchair sports.
Instruction includes archery, aquatics, basketball, body conditioning, tennis, track and field, basketball, softball, and more. Recreation and leisure activities may include photography, pottery, creative dramatics, and ceramics.

This day camp is designed for youth with physical disabilities ages 5 – high school.  Youth with cerebral palsy, polio, spinal cord injury, spina bifida, lower leg amputation and brain unjuries can inquire for participation.  Participants need not be active wheelchair users, buts sports will be played from a manual wheelchair and each camper must have sufficient range of motion, strength and endurance to participate as some activities maybe strenuous for the participant.

This camp introduces youth to a wide variety of sports and receation activities while helping to improve strength and endurance. All acitvities are geared toward improving self-esteem and confidence in the campers.  An added benefit of the camp is that it allows young people to meet others with similar disabilities, experience independence, teamwork and fun.

Due to the support of generous sponsors and many donations, we are able to offer the camp at no cost to participants.  The number of campers is limited so register early.

We provide::
Transportation available in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro areas and a designated site in Lincoln.
Admission and transportation for all field trips
Daily Lunch and snack
Nursing Assistance for basic needs
