Special Needs

The International Camporee is dedicated to providing access and services to visitors with special needs. Access is available to all Pathfinder venues, such as the Hanger area, activities, evening programs, and the EAA AirVenture Museum. There are some areas of the grounds that are grass and gravel covered, which may be more difficult for items such as scooters and wheelchairs to travel.
