The Ability Experience

Ability Weekends 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 Andrew Matznick, director of program development, at amatznick@abilityexperience.org or (980) 318-5387.

Registration will open by mid-December. Space is limited, so start spreading the word and check back soon!
