Fall Adult Weekend Retreat (adults 18+)

The Adult Weekend Retreat is a 3-day/2-night overnight camp experience for all adults with Down syndrome, ages 18 and above. The Retreats occur two times per year on location near Lake Wylie in South Carolina. The Retreats also offer a 3:1 participant-to-counselor ratio. The counselors support the vocational trainings and work closely with the adult participants to provide the best experience possible! We also welcome other adults with intellectual disabilities to join us if space allows.

Adult participants will focus on increasing self-confidence and independence through individual, small group and large activities and vocational projects throughout the weekend. For example, participants will learn about and practice Soft Skills for Success, Job Interviews, Appropriate Communication, and other Vocational Readiness skills.

The adults will also have the opportunity to participate in camp activities like Canoeing, Kayaking, Hiking, Fishing, Ziplining, Team Building, Rope Courses, Slip ‘N Slide, a Dance Party, and a Campfire with S’mores.
