Outing: Adult Empowerment Retreat


  • Crowne Plaza Hotel , 2055 Lincoln Highway Edison, NJ, 08817 United States (map)

The retreat is a weekend-long interactive and fun event designed for adults 21 years and over with disabilities to explore and experience increased independence, socialization, self-esteem and overall growth through such topics as health/wellness, relationships/intimacy, advocacy and others. Workshops provide ample opportunities for one-on-one and group interactions and are structured in a variety of ways including presentations, hands-on activities, movement and art. The retreat is coordinated, facilitated and led by individuals with disabilities. Come for one or two days or come for the whole weekend!
