June’s disability blog carnival topic is: Community
The camp effect
I find that in the community where I live and other parts of Ontario (I am Canadian) we tend to know a lot of the same disabled folk even if they don’t live in the same geographic area. Or, if I don’t know the person in question directly we inevitably know someone who knows said person.
What’s the cause of this?
The answer to that question seems simple: CAMP! To my knowledge Ontario only has a few camps that specifically specialize in having the bulk of their campers with physical disabilities. Because of this, people tend to flock to these camps from all over the province and thus you get the above mentioned effect.
I always loved camp you always ended up meeting interesting folks who often had the same disability. In my case meeting others with cerebral palsy only has expanded my social circles.
The blogging community
It seems weird to admit this, but in starting lifeofthedifferentlyabled.com I have learned more technical and non-technical information about cerebral palsy then I ever thought possible.
Some questions I have for you
