Children and adults with special needs love an opportunity to go camping. Each year an amazing group of volunteers from throughout the United States come together to provide and amazing experience for our campers. There are a myriad of activities to engage the campers and lots of one on one attention. The key to the success is the intergenerational staff working together for the well being of the campers and to the Glory of God.
Camp is not respite care so we ask that our campers have the mental ability to grasp the concepts presented in our daily Chapels and Bible classes.
In the summer, we provide several weeks of camping for youth and adults with physical and mental disabilities. We rent a camp in Mercersburg and one in Carlisle and have campers from Franklin, Cumberland, Perry, York, Adams and Dauphin counties.
Camper fees cover about 50% of the expenses. We depend on the community for the remainder.
