Dale Rogers Training Center (DRTC), Oklahoma’s oldest and largest vocational training and employment center for people with disabilities, continues its successful summer camp program for teenagers and young adults in 2017!

Camp Tumbleweed is a day camp for youth with disabilities, ages 14 through 21 years old in the Oklahoma City metro. It combines the traditional elements of a camp – field trips, crafts, and outdoor activities – with opportunities to develop independence and advocacy skills and start to learn about potential job opportunities after high school.

Session I: June 5 – 30

Session II: July 5 –July 28 (OKCPS) or August 11 (other districts)
