ESP exists to create transformative experiences for people with disabilities and their families, changing communities for the better!

ESP was founded in 1986 by our founder, Martha Wyllie. She noticed unequal opportunities for children with disabilities and decided she would be the change she wanted to see, starting ESP as one week of summer camp for only 21 participants....

ESP envisions a world where every person, of every ability, in every community has universal access to transformative experiences.
