Local News

PARK CITY, Utah (News4Utah) Twenty-four teenage patients from Shriners Hospitals for Children who live with limb differences show off their unlimited potential at the “Un-limb-ited” Ski and Snowboard Camp.

The National Ability Center instructors at Park City Mountain Resort provided adaptive equipment such as mono skis, bi-skis, outriggers and one-on-one expert instruction to help them along.

The staff also facilitated support groups to discuss common issues facing teen amputees such as recreation, relationships, body image, bullying and self-esteem.

“The things that I like about camp, are being able to bond with people and knowing that there are other people like me,” said Katelynn Case, camper.

Donations made it possible to provide this camp experience to patients free of charge. Art with Heart, a dance performance by three local studios recently donated more than $60,000 to the cause.
