Our specialized camp programs designed for kids and young adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities inspire all campers to reach their full potential. The primary goals are to help campers build self-esteem, develop social skills and make and maintain friendships. At camp, we sing, dance, laugh and cry. Camp is made possible thru donations from generous sponsors as well as hundreds of volunteers who make room in their hearts and their schedule to be part of this life-changing experience. It's not just campers who leave with tears in their eyes, it's the volunteers as well!
