Independent Living Retreat
A fun and safe weekend where young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities can learn, experience, and achieve
Tentative 2020 Date:
Friday, July 24th, 12 Noon – Sunday July 26th, 12 Noon
Tony and I were excited for Justin to participate in the Sunshine Social Club's ILR.
We weren't sure Justin would be comfortable with the idea, since he did not enjoy his Camp experience. Thanks to Justin's friend Alex K. and his mom Nancy, who encouraged Justin and assured him he would enjoy the retreat.
Justin enjoyed all the retreat had to offer. Okay, maybe he didn't enjoy dancing in front of everyone ;).
Justin had so much fun, he immediately told us he wanted to go again the next time. Justin says he liked making new friends at the retreat.
We're trying to help Justin be more independent and believe the ILR was a huge step forward.
