DEFY to bring Blue Lobster Program to Bucksport

Blue Lobster Program Comes to Bucksport, Fall 2023

Blue LobstersThe Blue Lobsters program provides an opportunity for children with disabilities to gather in a social setting providing a safe space for them to be themselves among their peers. Through this opportunity our participants gain confidence, social skills, and friendships to last a lifetime. Our “buddies” program stimulates inclusivity and acceptance of all individuals.


We strive to provide an inclusive environment where children with disabilities thrive through recreational opportunities and activities. Participants in our program will be able to develop meaningful relationships with their peers and both children and parents are provided a place to grow, learn, play and feel the support of a loving community.
