The July 14-18 camp at UCSB will provide instruction in a variety of sports

The 2009 Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp will be held July 14-18 at the UCSB Recreation Center.

The camp is designed for participants ages 5 to 19 who use wheelchairs.

It provides beginner to advanced instruction in a variety of wheelchair sports, including quad rugby, basketball, tennis, hand cycling, dance, swimming, kayaking, scuba diving, fitness, climbing wall and more. The camp also provides physical conditioning that stresses improved strength, endurance and mobility.

Family Day will be July 18. Families are invited to watch their camper demonstrate sport skills learned at camp. There is a resource fair, musical entertainment and an awards ceremony.

The 2009 Junior Wheelchair Sports Camp is sponsored by Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital, the Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation and the UCSB Recreation Department with support from community residents, organizations and businesses.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
