Arc Days Camps are great summer fun. For more than a dozen years The Arc has been thrilling kids from 5 to 21 with disabilities at its summertime Adventure Camps. The Arc in North Texas was founded in 1951 by parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) to improve their opportunity for meaningful public education and greater participation in community life.
The Arc’s year-round programs for members and their families in Collin, Dallas and Rockwall counties support and empower people with IDD to improve their quality of life by meeting new friends while enhancing life skills, improving self-esteem and increasing their level of independence.
This year, enjoy Arc Summers in even more ways!
