The Arc of San Diego's Leisure Express Trip & Travel Program


Leisure Express Local

The Arc of San Diego's Personal and Leisure Services (PALS) department has been offering quality local adventures for over 15 years to locations like Legoland, Sea World, San Diego Zoo & Safari Park, Civic Center Ballets, Mini Horse Therapy, Kayaking, Padres games, San Diego County Fair, and movies.

All outings maintain a minimum of 1:3 to 1:4 staff to participant ratio, and Leisure Express Local utilizes wheelchair accessible vehicles to assist with transportation to and from events.

Local outings are open to teens and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each participant is improving and gaining skills including independence, health & wellness, money handling, social skills, confidence, communication and so much more! We look forward to seeing you on one of our San Diego adventures!

Camp-A-Lot & Camp-A-Little


The Arc of San Diego's traditional resident summer camp for children, teens, and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities offers a relaxing week at a local residential camp. Days are filled with swimming, hiking, sports, field trips, sing-a-longs, talent shows, dances, arts & crafts, and carnivals. Staff to camper ratios are based on each individual's needs, but do not exceed a 1:5 ratio. Camp-A-Lot is accredited by the American Camp Association. Developed exclusively for the camp profession, the ACA focuses on program quality, health and safety issues, and requires us to review all areas of our camp program yearly.
