SOAR Fox Cities Camps program provides camping experiences for youth and adults with developmental disabilities. 

Camp activities are inclusive and designed to accommodate the differing cognitive abilities and fitness levels of campers. The purpose of the Camps program is to provide campers with unique social skills development opportunities, varied experiences and fun in a camp setting, and an environment to learn activities of daily living (overnight camp).  Camp also provides a much needed Respite for the campers’ families and caregivers. Transportation to overnight camps is provided.
