Kids LEAP is an inclusive summer camp for children with and without disabilities. What makes it unique? 

EXPERTISE
Working with people with different abilities: it’s what we do!

FLEXIBILITY
Kids attend any day/time during the week according to the family’s needs!

COMMUNITY FOCUS
Our activities get kids out and about as much as possible!

FRIENDSHIPS
Getting kids together is important to us, because we value social skills!

CHANGE
We want Kids’ LEAP to be the fresh, new alternative to a boring summer!

This year we are continuing our partnership part-time with the Boys & Girls Club at the Crestmont location to do some joint activities with them! We will still provide LIFEDesigns qualified, professionally trained staff to work with the children with disabilities who come to Kids LEAP through LIFEDesigns. However, this partnership will provide more than we have been able to provide in the past, allowing the program to be more inclusive, joining children with disabilities with children without a disability.

We will spend 2 to 3 days a week doing some joint activities with the Boy & Girls Club, using their facilities and resources, which are supported by their generous donors. Due to our high ratio of qualified, professionally trained staff to Kids LEAP children, we will be able to provide quality support to children with disabilities while including them in some of the fun curriculum that the Boys & Girls Club specializes in. This partnership benefited both groups of children last year and we are excited to continue it this year, building a more inclusive community.

This year, LIFEDesigns also received a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County to write curriculum for camp that focusses on knowledge retention over the summer months. This will greatly enhance the programming provided to the student participating and allow them to achieve greater levels of success when they re-enter school in the fall. Thank you CFBMC!

LIFEDesigns provides transportation, food, supplies, space and qualified professional staff for Kids LEAP. We provide services to children with disabilities with Medicaid or a Medicaid Waiver for no charge to the families. However, there are some children that come to us who do not have Medicaid or a Medicaid Waiver and must private pay. We are asking for individuals LIKE YOU to help us provide scholarships this summer for these children to come to the 2014 Kids LEAP Summer Camp.
