loving and serving adults with developmental disabilites & special needs

Our well-trained staff is dedicated to providing each individual with one of the best weeks of their year.

Campers sleep in cabins or dormitories and are invited to join us for camp activities such as archery, bocce ball, arts & crafts, music & Bible, mini golf, group games, and chapel. Our facility sits on a beautiful clear lake, providing the opportunity for optional waterfront activities including wading, swimming, and boating.

Each week we also provide special programs and activities including: talent show, picnics, movie night, water games, hayrides, dance parties, musical guests, and theme night.

Each day, campers are invited to sing & praise God and learn more about Him through evening chapel and music & Bible. Bible lessons are taught by caring teachers who desire that every person comes to know God and His love for them.

Each week campers receive a camp T-shirt and photo to help them remember their time at camp.
