I love going camping. Tents, trailers, cabins; they all put me in the woods. But camping with a disability can be especially challenging. I tend to go only with people I really trust to understand my limitations (and who don’t mind leading me to the bathroom at three in the morning). For people in wheelchairs, camping can be so much less a family affair than it otherwise would be. There are special camps for people with special needs, but how does that work for a family? Agur Lake Camp is addressing that question admirably. This camp is devoted to the idea of inclusion, to making a place where families can camp together and enjoy the outdoors together.
I just wanted you to say we had a fantastic time at Agur Lake Camp. My two teenage boys and my parents really enjoyed our visit. We especially enjoyed the hosts that you have there this year. Dee and Gordon are fantastic people and truly fun to be around.
I would just like you to know how much we have enjoyed Agur Lake Camp this year and how important it is to people with disabilities. This past spring we had the opportunity to visit Agur lake to see if it was a place that we could go to as a family to experience camping and fishing again…..and it was.
