Camp 2014

Week 2 Day 3: Disability Awareness Day

Today we began the day again in the SLU garden. We celebrated Disability Awareness Day by listening to an employee from Paraquad, Diane, talk about her experience with Cerebral Palsy. She explained how she has become independent through the help of Paraquad and how she helps others with disabilities to live their lives just like everyone else. We learned about how to treat those with a disability: just like any other person! Making fun of those with a disability or treating them like they are different from anyone else is extremely offensive, and Diane talked a little about her experiences with being looked at differently or made fun of. Then the campers got to use different equipment to see what it would be like to have a disability. The campers tried out rocker blades in an arm brace, leg braces, visually impairing eye goggles, and wheelchairs.

The campers then came inside and made their own lunch! They explored Israel and made Chicken Shawarma Sandwiches and Kibbutz (Israeli Vegetable Salad). What a delicious homemade lunch!

We then headed outside and enjoyed some physical activity before coming back into the food lab to end our day making some more delicious Middle Eastern foods. They made pita bread, halvah cheesecake, and dolmades (greek stuffed grape leaves).
