About Us

Sprout opens exciting new worlds to people with special needs. We are a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping people grow through safe, challenging, creative and fun experiences that enhance mobility, self-confidence and socialization.

Founded in 1979, Sprout is an organization that serves over 1800 people with special needs each year.

Our participants have the opportunity to experience age-appropriate, recreational and leisure activities in a small group setting. By offering these experiences, we hope to enhance the mobility, self-confidence and socialization of our participants. And through community-based activities, Sprout strives to break down some of the barriers that exist between participants and the general public.

The majority of the people who participate in our vacations are adults with developmental disabilities, with the most common disability being mental retardation. Our participants fall in the range of moderate to high functioning levels, with some individuals requiring a fair amount of assistance with basic living skills, while others are quite independent. All of our participants can travel within the typical group size of 10 participants and 3 leaders.
