Our interdisciplinary team has developed a community-based camp “GAME ON” that actively engages children and adolescents with CP in learning new motor skills and improving their functional mobility and fitness. We emphasize the activities used in the camp and the outcome measures to monitor participants’ progress. We present the results from a feasibility study that examined the effectiveness of the camp to improve and maintain functional mobility and physical activity in this population.
