In Poland there are only few summer camps for children with disabilities. They do want to spend their time just like their able peers. Our aim is to organize such camps even for children with severe disabilities. We provide great fun and a lot of exciting and engaging activities for them instead of dull, traditional rehabilitation. Throughout couple of days of the summer camps, kids have an opportunity to learn self-dependence. For most of them it is the first adventure without parents.
Did you know that most of the children with disabilities do not wait for the holidays? Because during the holidays, every day looks the same they sit in front of the TV or computer while their friends and colleagues participate in different summer camps. In Poland, there are only few camp offers for children with disabilities. These children, just like the able ones, would like to spend their time without parents, have great adventures and meet new friends. You can make kids' dreams come true!

We do know how much children are waiting for Little Explorers' camp because they call in January to ask if they will be able to come to us in the summer! Some children are with us from the very beginning. We are proud to see how Little Explorers become mature and valuable people. We know that life is opening its doors in front of them. In adult life they will be able to use the skills they learned during the holiday camps and will help them making bolder and more confident steps.
