Special Connexion 1

The Special Connexion was established in the fall of 2003 by the parents of the campers and by the board of directors of the Advocates for Special People, Inc. to provide educationally and physically challenging activities for the mentally and physically challenged.

ASP, Inc. (of which the parents are members) received permission from Epworth United Methodist Church in Arlington to use a building on the church property for the day camp. ASP, Inc. continued to grow and decided on a program name, The Special Connexion.

Special Connexion 1 re-opened April 5.  Advocates for Special People has published a protocol for Covid-19 Policies and Procedures document that you can read or download here .
