DEDHAM, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Camp CaPella wrapped up its regular seven week summer camp for physically and mentally disabled youth last month. This week it was the adults turn to have some fun.
This is the fourth year that Downeast Horizons, an organization that assists and supports adults and children with developmental disabilities in Downeast Maine, and Camp CaPella have partnered up to offer a full week of summer camp for adults who participate in the Horizons program. According to the Executive Director of Downeast Horizons, Tony Zambrano, the week is a great way for his clients to forget about their disability and just enjoy the Maine outdoors. "Each of these individuals have a disability and today they get to enjoy life without worrying about that disability," says Zambrano
Close to 150 campers are utilizing the week at CaPella. They get to participate in several activities such as swimming, boating, movie nights, karaoke, and much more. Executive Director of Camp CaPella, Dana Mosher, enjoys allowing other organizations that offer services to people with developmental disabilities the opportunity to utilize his camp. "This is an incredible resource for agencies like Downeast Horizons and more importantly for our disabled community," says Mosher.
The camp week for the Downeast Horizons program will wrap up this Sunday.
