What We Do

Together with high school and middle school volunteers, we work with participants to teach them the mechanics of sports and support recreational programs. What’s more, our volunteers socially engage participants developing long lasting bonds and relationships. Our coaches oversee participants and volunteers to help coordinate games and classes. Since its inception, PAASS has connected participants, volunteers, coaches, and parents together to build a community of support, awareness, and acceptance.

Classes & Camps

Camp PAASS Without Boundaries – Summer 2017

We had a blast at Camp PAASS! In partnership with Mill Valley Recreation, our inaugural summer camp at the Mill Valley Community Center in 2016 was a huge success. By request from several families, we extended the program to three weeks in 2017. As with all PAASS programs, spaces filled quickly. It was an incredible experience for our campers, volunteers, and counselors.

Several Adaptive Needs classes are being offered again this Fall, including the return of the popular Dance Brigade, Martial Arts, and Cooking for Independence. New programs include Yoga, Strength & Conditioning, and Independent Life Safety Skills. Registration begins August 21st.
