More than a dozen kids and young adults living with disabilities are some of the most fearless crime fighters in Chicagoland - at least for this week.

They are focusing on their amazing abilities in Super Hero Camp.

The week long program in southwest suburban Lemont partners campers with theatre industry professionals, social workers and volunteers.

Participants rotate through workshops like makeup and special effects.

Campers get to create their own super hero persona and super villain, discussed with art students and counselors and brought to life on paper.

And regardless of their physical limitations, they also get to experience soaring into the sky.

Breaking down perceived or actual limitations - physical or otherwise - in hopes of teaching campers the real magic of being a super hero, self confidence and the ability to change the world they live in. Who needs leaping tall buildings in a single bound?
