Summer Camps

Camp Shriver is an inclusive summer camp that is a collaboration between the City of Miami Sandra DeLucca Center, Special Olympics of Miami Dade and Dade Amateur Golf Association. The camp is for registered Special Olympics Miami-Dade County Athletes with intellectual disabilities and young adults without disabilities. Participants learn new sports skills, improve individual sports performance, participate in individual and team sports, build friendships, and have fun with peers.

The camp sports activities include basketball, softball, soccer, sailing, kayaking, golf, swimming, and arts and crafts.

This inclusive camp focuses on social, educational, as well as athletic skills training. The targeted ages for young adults with disabilities is 14 to 22 years old and for young adults without disabilities 14 to 18 years old.

This 6 week camp is funded through the fundraising efforts of Special Olympics Miami-Dade and Dade Amateur Golf Association. There's only a one time Registration Fee of $50.00 - lunch and snack is provided free of charge.

*The National Inclusion Project serves to bridge the gap that exists between young people with disabilities and the world around them. We partner with communities and inclusive programs creating awareness about the possibilities that inclusion can bring.
