DISABLED INDIVIDUALS TO ATTEND 12th ANNUAL LAND MEETS SEA SPORTS CAMPS AT MARINE STADIUM TUESDAY, AUG 8 THROUGH FRIDAY, AUG 11
Pomona, CA…Casa Colina's Outdoor Adventures program will host the 12th Annual Land Meets Sea Sports Camp on August 8th through the 11th, 2006 at Long Beach Marine Stadium and other sites in Long Beach.

As part of the Long Beach Sea Festival, Land Meets Sea Sports Camp is a unique event for persons with disabilities ages 4 and older incorporating water, land, recreation and competitive sports. More than 130 persons with various disabilities will have the opportunity to experience sports including water skiing, jet skiing, kayaking, sailing, tethered hot air balloon rides, deep sea fishing and an introduction to SCUBA in addition to over-the-line softball, quad rugby, outrigger canoeing, harbor cruises, power soccer and wheelchair basketball, football, hockey, tennis and hand-cycling. Opportunities to experience sports first hand are guided by Casa Colina's staff of certified Therapeutic Recreational Specialists and Wilderness First Responders, volunteers, coaches and athletes.

In addition, the camp will feature a special Kids Kamp (held on Wednesday, August 9 from 9 am to 4 pm) for children ages, four and up. This includes an all-day schedule ranging from crafts to sandcastle building to sailing in the afternoon. This portion of the camp provides an opportunity for younger participants to gradually build up to participating in the overall camp in later years.

One of the most unique aspects of the camp is the variety of people who attend. In 2005 the camp had participants ranging in age from young children to mature adults, as well as a wide spectrum of abilities. Beginners as well as those with experience are made to feel welcome and capable as they try challenging sports and recreational activities.

The fee for the camp is $225 for all four days, and includes participation in all events, lunches, goodie bag, and a t-shirt. Water skiing, jet skiing and kayaking begin at 8 am with all other activities starting at 9 am. Many camp participants stay at nearby hotels over the course of the four-day event. The cost for Kids Kamp is $100 for the day and includes camp activities, t-shirt, snack and lunch.

Camp sponsors include AMed Healthcare, Long Beach Sea Festival, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, Long Beach Parks, Recreation & Marine, Kawasaki, Lokahi Outrigger Canoe Club, SCI Special Fund, Mentor Urology and the United States Sailing Center.

The Outdoor Adventures program is a part of Casa Colina Centers for Rehabilitation, a non-profit, community governed organization dedicated to inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and specialized medical services. Since 1938, when its main function was serving children with polio in Southern California, Casa Colina has grown into a network providing medical rehabilitation, community re-entry, residential, return-to-work and community service programs for children and adults from all over the world.

This special camp fills up quickly. If you would like more information, please call the Outdoor Adventures office today at 909/596-7733, Ext 2200.

Media representatives and photographers that would like to cover this event should contact Casa Colina's public relations department 909/596-7733, Ext. 2227 or 800/926 5462, Extension 2227.
