Education cost money,

 but then so does ignorance.
-Claus Moser

 

 

 A teacher affects eternity;

 he can never tell where

his influence stops.

- Henry B Adams

 

 

You can teach a student a
lesson for a day; but if you can

teach him to learn by creating
curiosity, he will continue the

learning process as long as he lives.

- Clay P. Bedford

 

It is in fact a part of the function of education is

to help us escape, not from our own time

— for we are bound by that —

but from the intellectual and emotional

limitations of our time.
T.S. Eliot

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP (formerly Camp Shriver), gives over 100 campers, volunteers, and staff members a chance to interact in a fun, engaging, and safe atmosphere of sportsmanship, and fitness.

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP provides sports training in individual and team sports and, most importantly, builds lasting relationships between people with and without intellectual disabilities. Campers come from public and private schools, volunteer agencies, and the local community.

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP offers a unique athlete-partner model that has proven successful thanks in part to the terrific sense of community that exists in Douglas County. The success of our camp is due to tremendous community support.

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP provides campers with a diverse set of camp experiences that they may never have otherwise known. In the seven days of camp, campers and partners will play at least five different sports, swim daily, visit the community duck pond, go on a hike, go on a fishing trip, cook their lunch over a fire, and gain confidence in a unique team-driven environment.

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP combines the athlete-partner concept with a fun and rigorous day camp atmosphere. Camp runs for two weeks in July, three to four days a week, from 10am to 3pm. Students with disabilities are partnered alongside students without disabilities. This partnership in a team setting builds long-lasting friendships and camaraderie that will last a lifetime.

YMCA/DESD PARTNERSPORTS CAMP is conducted with the help and coordination of many volunteers work­ing year-round. We thank all of those individuals and organizations that have contrib­uted so graciously to making better the lives of our young campers. Special thanks to DCIPA - The Physicians of Douglas County, Jeanne Hatfield - Zelma Taylor Memorial Youth Fund, The Whipple Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, Douglas ESD, and contributors to the Y Strong Kids Campaign.

Dozens of staff members and volunteers come together to ensure that everyone involved has a rich, healthy experience. Volunteers do everything from introducing new games and sports, to assisting coaches with day-to-day training, to preparing lunch and keeping camp running smoothly.
