    Description

    The purposes of this study were to investigate how families who have a child with Down's syndrome spend their vacations and to explore families perceived barriers to family vacations. Interviews were conducted with families who had at least three children, one of whom had Down's syndrome. Using qualitative methods, data were collected in an exploratory study (n=25). An analysis of the results explores family vacation preferences and factors affecting family camping experiences.
