Special Friends Day Camp and Overnight Camp2017 information and registration will be available February 28.

Fun without limits!

That's what people with special needs ages 15 and up experience in Special Friends Camps! This all inclusive program encourages campers to participate in swimming, crafts mini-golf, field games, Challenge Course, music and chapel skits, group competitions, and much more!

Campers are provided camp counselor "buddies" who assist campers as needed and help them enjoy all that camp has to offer. Adult caregivers are welcome to attend at no additional charge, but are not required.

Special Friends Day Camps are four days long (Tue.-Fri.) 9:00am-4:30pm. Daily lunch and snack provided.

For more information about our Special Friends program please contact Laurie Fertello, Disabilities Ministries Director, at (425) 239-9841.

"It was a wonderful time of respite for me as the Mom. I felt totally safe leaving my special needs teenager."
"I am very impressed. It was all very well organized and everyone was so nice and very attentive to the campers."
