Camp A.B.L.E. is a summer camp designed for disabled children between the ages of 8-14. Camp A.B.L.E. (which stands for Achieve, Believe, Learn, Experience), gives participants the opportunity to take part in a variety of adapted "traditional" summer camp activities throughout the day, including crafts, swimming, songs, games, and trips which encourage campers to interact with peers. Camp A.B.L.E. helps to enhance social skills; strengthen gross- and fine-motor skills; and builds independence. The Camp A.B.L.E. Fund provides scholarships for families that demonstrate a need. The program also seeks to offset some expenses related to important items like sensory integration tools and accessible transportation that currently exist outside of Camp A.B.L.E.'s current budget.

Several funds have been created by donors that will be funded upon their passing. The donors have already designated which nonprofits to which they are directing grants from their funds. This arrangement allows the donor to designate the time span of the donation to their designated nonprofit rather than granting it to the nonprofit all at once. The fund will continue to grow with investment income during the grant-out years, providing the nonprofit with a steady income and professional management of investment assets.
