LABELLE, FL. -- A Hendry county charity fund is sponsoring a camp for adults with disabilities at the Riverside Retreat Center located west of LaBelle, October 22nd thru October 25th, 2012.

The Robert V. and Benjamin G. Miller Fund will sponsor Trailways Camp, with organizing help from Goodwill of Southwest Florida.

Trailways Camp is currently accepting applications from adults with disabilities ages 18 and older . To be eligible, campers must be living in a parental home, a quasi-independent setting or in a group home or other 24-hour supervised care setting. There are 20 participant spots available.

The Trailways Camp mission will be to remove the social isolation often felt by people with disabilities by providing opportunities for fun, friends and support. Through outdoor activities, group exercises, crafts, and more, campers will have the opportunity to develop recreational skills and build relationships. Activities will include fishing, campfire roasts, a visit by Special Equestrians, canoeing, a talent show, a Halloween party, movie night, and more!
