Many of these life changing special projects are unique to Sedgwick County. It is required that participants be a member of The Arc in order to participate in our programs, except for the free Evening of Activities and Youth Activity Days.

A residential camp hosted at the Best Western at I-135 and 53rd Street North. Being at a hotel with access to pool and air conditioning has been extremely beneficial so campers can escape the summer heat. Community activities are planned daily. The camp typically falls on the first week of August and runs Monday – Thursday.
