PROGRAMS BY AGE
The journey of living with disability and chronic illness starts at a young age for many of our participants. We’re committed to offering programming that supports this lifespan from the beginning. Our programs are designed to follow the unique developmental needs of each age category to best nurture social and life skills at every stage. Many of our young adult participants today started at The Woodlands at an early age and benefit from the progressive programming that has followed them closely. Choose from day or evening programs ideal for youth not ready for overnight activities.
Woodlands Programs for Children
For the 6-12 age category, there is no overnight programming available. Please explore what our daytime programming has to offer.
Our Teen programs offer opportunities to interact socially, experience a wide range of recreational activities, and expand horizons beyond expectations. We encourage participants to imagine the possibilities! A variety of overnight camps, retreats, and daytime clubs provide outlets for teens to express themselves through hands-on, personalized and creative experiences. Our teen programming also aims to develop the skills and healthy lifestyles needed to nurture self-determination, empowerment, overall health and leadership.
Woodlands Programs for Teens
YOUNG ADULTS (22-29)
With adolescent experiences behind for our participants, the challenges of adulthood can be both exciting and intimidating. For young adults with disability and chronic illness, we have programs designed specifically to help understand and overcome this intimidation and discover newfound potential for socialization, independence, activity and health. Daytime and overnight experiences in the good company of peer participants help with this transition and inspire excitement for what’s possible.
Woodlands Programs for Young Adults
It’s not just the kids who get to share fun nights and days at The Woodlands. So adults, join us for new experiences that will continue to inspire personal growth, health, independence and socialization. We offer several camps, retreats, and daytime clubs, specifically designed for adults with disability and chronic illness. These programs help to spark confidence, laughter and a few new friendships, so come see what’s possible!
