Camp Paha is a summer day-camp program for children ages 6-17 with physical, emotional, and cognitive disabilities. The Paha Adults in Transition (PAT) program is for young adults with disabilities ages 18-25 and focuses on building social and independent living skills. Without this camp, many of these campers would be stuck at home for the summer. Thhis camp is life changing for campers and their families becuase it provides the opportunity for campers to build life skills, independence, friendships and fun in a safe and nurturing environment.
Camp Paha, begun in 1970, remains the only summer day-camp of its kind in the Denver metro area specifically for youth with disabilities. The program began primarily as a resource for working parents who could not afford more expensive summer child care services that met the specific needs of their children. Over time, Camp Paha became a full summer camp experience for youth with disabilities and essential respite care for parents.
