Campers Enjoy Fun and Friendship at Camp Able

Campers enjoyed a fun-filled week of activities at Camp Able, hosted each year by St. Mark’s Episcopal Church on Marco Island.

The annual camp, now in its thirteenth year, is designed specifically for people living with intellectual, developmental or physical disabilities, such as Down syndrome, autism and cerebral palsy. However, at Camp Able, they call them “diverse abilities,” focusing on abilities rather than disabilities.

A variety of activities are held at the weeklong camp as shown in the photos: Scuba diving, kayaking, paddleboarding, spa day, skeet shooting, dance party, and so much more, all made possible by the many caring individuals who volunteer their time to ensure the campers are having fun. It takes the island business community, churches and charitable organizations to make the annual camp possible.
