Camp Combines Skills with Fun for Physically Disabled Kids
MANKATO, Minn. -- MSU's Disability Sport and Activity Camp, led by students studying developmental adapted physical education, is combining skill work and fun this week for kids with physical disabilities.
All week, campers are working on physical skills like balance and hand-eye coordination through games and activities.
"A lot of kids with disabilities, they get written off automatically, especially in the physical education department. So we just want them to get active and do everything from being able to use their hands to running," said counselor Andrew Bentz, an MSU undergraduate student.
The day camp runs everyday this week from 9 a.m. to noon. It is free and open to all kids ages 8-14.
