Family Day Out & Parents Night Out
Family Day Out (FDO)
FDO is a Saturday day-camp for children ages 6-14 with all types of disabilities. Each session is staffed by a nurse and a center director. The children benefit from arts and crafts, games, and playground activities and receive one-on-one assistance from volunteers. Siblings ages 6-10 can also attend, allowing parents a total day of rest.
New for FDO 2013! Easter Seals will have an Augmentative and Alternative Communications (AAC) "mini camp" running within FDO. While having fun doing regular FDO activities, campers who are AAC users will also enhance their community participation by developing communication skills using their AAC devices. At each FDO, five spots will be held for campers who are AAC users.
