Last year the City of Green collaborated with Summit Developmental Disabilities Board Inclusion Department to assist Summer Camp staff with providing camps inclusive and open to children of all abilities. According to Matt Kress, recreation programmer for the summer camps, the program was such a success that the we are continuing the collaboration again this year to allow us to better serve campers of varying abilities, creating a quality camp experience for everyone.
