Camp Little Giant – Camp Shawnee I

Sunday, July 15, 2018, 8:00 am

Touch of Nature Environmental Center, 1206 Touch of Nature Road, Makanda

Camp for youth ages 8-21 with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities on July 15-20.

Camp Little Giant’s focus is for the camper to be as independent as possible while still following routines and providing necessary assistance. Four to eight campers and a minimum of two counselors share a rustic cabin located near a washhouse and dispensary. Activity staff, nurses, volunteers and other support staff assist with the 24-hour supervision provided for each camper.

Nurses staff the camp dispensary 24 hours a day. They administer medications, handle routine first aid and respond to illness and medical emergencies.  The Carbondale Center for Medical Arts and Memorial Hospital of Carbondale provide additional prompt medical service if necessary.

Camp Little Giant has specialized programs designed for individuals with physical and developmental disabilities, visual and hearing impairments, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, autism, ADD/ADHD, traumatic brain injuries and special needs individuals.

Camp Shawnee Session I is for youth ages 8-21 with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities. It is scheduled for July 15-20.
