Summer means camp season for our Easterseals Crossroads families and we offer quite a selection of camps designed for children and adolescents. Our Camp FUEL is designed for adolescents with disabilities and special needs who are ages 11 – 17 years old.
Meet our Camp FUEL staff — an amazing group of people who are revved up for summer fun!

Angie joined us two years ago as a lead counselor at CampAbility; she liked it so much that she was quick to accept the position as our manager of respite services when it became available. Angie oversees all of our respite programs, which include not only our summer camps, but our
Parents’ Night Out, Teen Night Out and CHEER (adult respite). Angie received her degree in child development from Owens College; she has over 20 years of experience working with children with special needs and disabilities and we are thrilled that she has made Easterseals Crossroads her home!
