Summer CAMP Summer Camp is a series of five-day camp sessions for children and adults with special needs who may not be eligible to attend other camps due to the severity of their disability or medical condition. The sessions take place at our Camp CAMP facility in Center Point, Texas. Each session begins Sunday afternoon and ends on Friday afternoon. Camper’s sleep in a large, wheelchair accessible, climate controlled cabins, along with counselors. Each camper is assigned to a counselor with the camper/counselor ratio 1:1 to 4:1, depending on the need of the camper. Camper’s medical needs are overseen by health care volunteers – doctors, residents, nurses, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, pharmacy students, and medical students. We also include activities for campers’ siblings without disabilities.
Campers are divided into “tribes” based on age and sex. They participate in activities and sleep in cabins with their tribe. During the day, campers participate in traditional camping activities: horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, outdoor cooking, nature, sports and recreation, music recreation, and archery. Night time activities can include campfire w/ s ‘mores, karaoke, night, carnival, swim night, messy night, scavenger hunt, dance, and the celebrated Pawnee Prom for our older tribe. All activities can be adapted according to the needs of the camper.
