Camp A.B.L.E. Receives Corvette Legend Car Club Donation

"We couldn't be more appreciative of the Corvette Legends Club’s generous decision to donate funds from their summer car show to Camp A.B.L.E.,” said Jennifer Girard, Recreation Specialist. “Providing a traditional summer camp experience with adaptions that keep activities fun and inclusive, despite the wide range of disabilities that often challenge our campers, isn't always easy; but it is always worth it for us.”


Camp A.B.L.E., which stands for Achieve, Believe, Learn and Experience, is one of several activities and services offered by Canton Township’s Therapeutic Recreation program. Therapeutic Recreation offers year-round program opportunities, socialization and support for individuals with disabilities of all ages residing in Western Wayne County.


For over 17 summers, this therapeutic recreation camp has been extremely successful and has set the precedent for Therapeutic Recreation camps to be modeled after throughout western Wayne County.  Participants take part in a variety of activities throughout the day, interacting with their peers, enhancing social skills, gross and fine motor skills, and gaining independence.  Camp A.B.L.E. runs Mondays thru Fridays, and consists of three field trips per week, with two days of specially planned activities at the camp site, and swimming at The Summit Aquatics Center.


Corvette Legends is a small club of Corvette enthusiasts from the Metro Detroit area, who share a common bond of having fun in their Corvettes. Corvette Legends’ activities include social events, car shows, cruise nights, color tours and trips.  Proceeds from their events are donated to local charities.  For additional information about the Corvette Legend’s Club, visit www.corvettelegends.net.


Corvette Legends Club is set to host the 13th annual Corvettes at the Summit car show on July 8, 2017 in beautiful Heritage Park, located behind the Canton Administration Building at 1150 S. Canton Center Road, Canton, MI 48188. This year’s event will feature food, music, prizes and America’s favorite sports car – the Corvette.  In addition, this year’s car show will be the first in the country to have a C7 Corvette on display. Funds raised during the Corvettes at the Summit event will also be donated to Camp A.B.L.E.
