Special Friends Camp

Sharing Jesus with Adults who have Intellectual Disabilities

About Camp

Our Special Friends are adult individuals (age 18 and older) with cognitive disabilities. Special Friends, each with their own unique set of abilities and challenges, travel across the state to attend Special Friends summer camp.

Our Mission is to …

… Share about our most special friend, Jesus
… Provide experiences to participants outside of their normal schedules
… Give caregivers a break from daily responsibilities
