Summer Fun

Looking for a fun way to spend your summer?

The Center for Enriched Living is a social enrichment and skill development community center dedicated to serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We exist so that people with developmental disabilities can be fully included in the community, achieve personal success, and enjoy a good quality of life.

We have a Summer Camp for teens and young adults, which will run Monday - Friday, June 6th - August 5th. Volunteers are able to join all of the fun from 1 pm-5 pm. Volunteers are asked to commit to at least one shift per week for the entire 8-week session (same day and time slot each week).

Under the guidance and supervision of staff, volunteers will participate in activities and interact directly with our campers. Activities may include arts & crafts, swimming, drama, horseback riding, cooking, and community outings.

Previous experience with people with disabilities is helpful but not required.

Description

The Center for Enriched Living is a social enrichment and skill-development center dedicated to serving people with developmental disabilities or special needs. We strive to make The Center a place where our members can truly belong and where new opportunities, new challenges, and new friendships await them. All of our programs have a dual focus of engaging in fun activities while also learning and expressing social skills with peers. Most importantly, programs are designed with our members - they tell us what they want to learn and we create it! Activities may include: dance, drama, music, arts, fitness, cooking, nutrition, gardening, technology, community outings and much more.
