Camp Paha and Paha Adults in Transition

Lakewood Therapeutic Recreation offers two summer day program options for individuals with disabilities: Camp Paha for youth ages 6 to 17 and Paha Adults in Transition (PAT) for young adults ages 18 to 25.

Our goals are to:

  • Provide opportunity for fellowship and fun.
  • Provide an opportunity for developing awareness about self, others and the environment.
  • Give emphasis to citizenship and being a member of a group through the day program experience.
Camp Paha and PAT are held for seven weeks, typically, mid-June through the end of July (with half-summer options available). Both programs run 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday. The staff to participant ratio is 1:4.

Registration Information

Step 1:
Complete your camper’s health profile. Pre-Registration for Paha 2019 will open on 1/1/2019 to allow families ample time to complete their camper’s health profile prior to the official registration opening on 2/14/2019. The registration fee of $50 will be due at this time.


Step 2:
Registration opens on 2/14/19. At this time families may register their camper for desired sessions. Please note that you will automatically be placed on a wait list for the session. Once Paha staff has reviewed your campers profile for completeness, your camper will be promoted to the desired session if space is still available. If your camper’s health profile is incomplete, your camper will remain on the wait list until the profile is completed.
