Overnight camp opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities ages 8 and older

Special Camps is an overnight, all-volunteer-run camp for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

While families and caregivers get a week-long respite, trained staff and 24-hour nursing provide a safe place for campers to explore new opportunities encouraging independence, self-esteem and friendships.

Special Camps 2024 overnight sessions will be held on:

  • June 2 – 7 for adult campers ages 23 and up
  • June 9 – 14 for campers ages 8 to 22

Campers will stay in dorm rooms that are carpeted, air-conditioned and have attached bathrooms.

Alongside a teen volunteer and trained adult supervisors, campers will enjoy activities including:

  • Swimming, archery and outdoor sports
  • Horseback riding and grooming
  • Arts and crafts
  • Hayrides, campfire songs and s’mores

The cost is $450 per session. Partial scholarships may be available.

See the Special Camps flyer for more details.
