Summer Camps for Amputee Kids 2024

If you still haven’t signed your kid up for an amputee-themed summer camp, don’t wait much longer. All the programs listed below are sleepaway camps with national reach, and most have been accepting applications since January. They all still had slots available as Amplitude went to press in early February.

In addition, local organizations across the country offer day camps for kids with limb difference and other disabilities. There also are numerous camp opportunities for adult amputees. Search for these programs in Amplitude’s online Community Resource Directory, using the keyword “camp.”
