Our Groups

Stay Together & Learn From Each Other

KIDS GROUP (6-10)

At Kids Group, we let kids be kids! This is an opportunity for young children with Down Syndrome to get to know each other, have fun, and share experiences.

Our next Kids Group event is coming up soon. Stay tuned for more details.

YOUTH GROUP (10-18)

Our Youth Group nights provide youth with Down Syndrome and their families with unique opportunities to mingle, play, explore, and participate in a friendly environment.

ADULT GROUP (19 & up)

Our Adult Groups bring adults with special abilities together. These nights give them a break and allow them to relax and chat with other members (and have a little fun too!)
