Adaptive Camp

Adaptive Baseball Camps extend WBA’s programming to serve young people who are underserved from the aspect of participating in youth sports and related life-skills lessons. Our collaborative partner in this venture is YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne. The Camps teach basic baseball skills in ways adapted to the developmental and physical abilities of each participant.  

Objectives of these special abilities Camps include: Creating new recreational experiences for young people with disabilities in a fun environment in which they can socially engage with typically developing peers; creating new social interaction experiences for peers to discover they have much in common with those who may not share the same abilities, including the joy of the game and desires to learn and achieve.
