Make Special Camps Affordable for Campers in need!
Special Camps empowers campers with intellectual disabilities and autism to develop social skills, self-esteem and independence through participation in new activities alongside a teen volunteer, in weeklong, overnight camps.
Your donation to Special Camps, alongside our all-volunteer team, helps to keep the cost of attending low while sustaining high quality programming. Additionally, your support keeps programs accessible to the many families that depend on scholarships.
Special Camps Benefits:
210 campers with intellectual disabilities and autism are empowered to develop increased social skills, self-esteem and independence through new activities alongside their teen volunteer in weeklong, overnight camps.
205 families receive week-long respite. Knowing their child is lovingly cared for with 24-hour loving care, from trained volunteers and RN nurses. For many families, this is their only source of respite.
120 Teenagers and 55 Adult volunteers report life-changing insights from living beside the campers they serve. Adult leaders run activities, reside within dorms, and RN nurses dispense all medications and treatments.
140 people with intellectual disabilities living in local group homes and our Special Camps friends enjoy fun, loving Christmas and Easter parties.
Please consider a recurring gift as part of your giving plan. You choose the size of your donation and how often you would like to give (eg. monthly, quarterly or annually).
