ABC News 4: Overcoming obstacles: Campers with Down syndrome scale a climbing wall at Camp Rise Above

CHARLESTON, SC–

Kids with Down syndrome love to have fun and be active. They can also face other physical challenges.

But campers with Down syndrome at Camp Rise Above were able to overcome 50-foot walls at James Island County Park.

“Because the camper to counselor ratio is one-on-one, you get to constantly encourage them and it’s very rewarding to see them fulfill these challenges,” said counselor Claudia Lemon.

Counselor Adele Cisco adds, “They are all cheering for each other to do a good job.”

Check out the video above of the campers enjoying a day at the park while overcoming obstacles.
