Mission & Vision

Founders-- Sharon & Jerry Miller

We envision a community ofuniquely created individuals in relationship with one another. Our mission is to enable adults with special needs to grow their social, emotional and spiritual relationships.


Camping experiences enhance relationship building through a range of activities led by qualified staff and volunteers while families/caregivers receive the opportunity for respite.  The Fund provides resources to qualified organizations that share our vision and submit a grant application to become approved as a provider. Applications are available upon request.


Campers are charged a $35 registration fee. Information is provided on how campers or family members can donate toward the cost of their camp
