Individuals over the age of 18, with special needs are invited to apply. Acceptance is NOT based on diagnosis or types of disabilities/special needs.  The provider organization is responsible for selecting a pool of campers that is diverse and able to form relationships as a whole.  Prior camps have had individuals with a variety of specials needs resulting from cognitive, vision, hearing, mobility,  traumatic brain, emotional and substance use issues and a variety of other chronic conditions that have been addressed through appropriate staff selection and training. 

Camp sessions may be thematically organized.  For example we have had camps in February that had “love” themes—loving self, loving neighbors, loving your community.  We have had fall camps that have been organized around Halloween and Thanksgiving themes.  Some camps have had international themes—Mexican Fiesta, Hawaiian Luau,

Western Days,  etc.  Artists with disabilities have experienced retreats where they are encouraged to create and express themselves through a wide variety of their artistic creations. 

Favorite activities have included fishing, swimming, hiking, hayrides, campfires and smores, canoeing and paddle boating, arts and crafts, spiritual experiences, music including dances, campfire singing and karaoke, talent shows, cowboy cookouts, trust building games, bingo, and many more.  Field trips have been included such as rodeos, historical museums, ice cream parlors, etc. Sometimes shows or activities have been brought in such as “Wild Birds of Prey, Miniature horses.    

Each day includes rest times, good food, activity choices and lots of fun!
