I love camp, I know I have written on this topic in the past but I think its an important one. I feel it important for parents and families to take times of respite. But how?
My personal favourite and actually the only one I participated in, was camp. I think I loved this as much as my parents did; I made some friends who years later I am still friends with today. camp also allows you to challenge yourself to try new new things despite your disability. I like the supportive envoiroment of camp because instead of seeing your disability camp allows you to see your own ability. In some respects I am sad I am too old now for camp
Weekend respite is another option and one that I am told by my friends, who as children used it was equally as enjoyable for them. The advantage I can see to this method is it is available year round.
How do you make sure as parents that you get a break every now and then?
