Ability Camp

Ability Camps are national service projects that provide funding and manpower to build and renovate structures for camps and facilities serving the disability community. Members of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity from various universities construct accessible fishing piers, boardwalks, pavilions, playgrounds and more in an effort to highlight the abilities of people with disabilities. The work done will help enhance the lives of people with disabilities while also building bonds of brotherhood.

Since 1989, The Ability Experience has been dedicated to serving the disability community through these weekends. Camps or facilities interested in hosting an Ability Weekend can contact our chapter services via email.

Ability Camp Guatemala

Guatemala does not have legislation similar to the American Disabilities Act (ADA) which means people with disabilities living in Guatemala do not have access to the types of resources in the US. Ability Experience volunteers can make a difference by helping to build an accessible project for people with disabilities.
