Camp No Limits
Thirty-two children came to our Mount Carmel and York Hill campuses from across America to try new things, develop innovative skills and feel more independent. The children, partnered with 45 graduate occupational and physical therapy students, participated in 3 days of purposefully designed events and activities at Camp No Limits.
Camp No Limits is a national nonprofit organization that provides education, mentorship opportunities and support for children with limb loss. Quinnipiac hosted its first camp in 2015 and has continued to grow the program on campus.
Each of the children came to the camp with at least one parent and, often, a sibling. Quinnipiac is proud to be the only university to host one of the 10 camps. Students work with occupational and physical therapy students in activities like basketball, sled hockey and adaptive ice skating, field-day activities and adaptive arts and crafts.
Newman's Own Foundation recently awarded Quinnipiac’s Center for Interprofessional Healthcare Education a $12,500 grant to provide scholarships and adaptive sports materials for Camp No Limits at the university. The grant will support families to attend the camp as well as adaptive arts, crafts and sports for the children with limb loss.
