The National Inclusion Project has partnered with YMCA Camp Greenville in Cleveland, S.C. to “create an inclusive environment where children with and without disabilities can play, learn and laugh together.” The National Inclusion Project will share the Let’s ALL Play program model and will hold the annual Power of Play Conference. The organization will also offer its expertise and training to ensure inclusion on playgrounds.
Children attending Camp Greenville through the Inclusion Project will participate in activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, community service, physical fitness and more. The Let’s ALL Play model hopes to improve self-esteem and social skills in children with disabilities, and problem-solving and empathy skills in those without. Additionally, the program’s goal is to create friendships.
