CPP Caregiver Mini-Conference

Saturday, April 22, 2023


Humphrey Nature Center
1 Letchworth State Park

Come spend a morning with the Camp Puzzle Peace Staff and learn about some new skills and strategies to help support your family member(s) with a disability to have greater access to nature and the community. This will be a hands-on and interactive morning in a fun and low key approach. Hopefully families will take comfort in learning along-side educational professionals and other families that are experiencing many of the same challenges. 

Conference fee: $40.00 per family

Light refreshment provided during registration and materials will be created on site that caregivers will be able to leave with. 

Limited to 30 participants
