Elks Rehab Hospital supports many community events through sponsorships, donations and
providing hundreds of volunteers for our neighborhood causes.
Idaho Wheelchair Camp
In 1988 the Idaho Youth Wheelchair Sports Camp (IYWSC) began, sponsored by Elks Rehab Hospital
and Boise Parks and Recreation Department. It was established to provide recreational,
athletic and competitive opportunities for youth. It is designed for young people using
wheelchairs or other assistive devices (i.e. crutches, walkers, and braces). Since its
inception, the IYWSC has provided a variety of experiences for over 325 young athletes
from Idaho, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
Participants learn and enjoy activities such as:
- canoeing/ kayaking
- track and field
Each athlete is paired with a volunteer to assist and support as needed. Camp will be
held this year June. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Click here
