Special Needs Programs

Special Needs Programs - Special Friends Camp is fun for all!

Special Friends Camps, designed for older teens and adults with special needs, make a big difference for campers and deeply impact the volunteers who serve as their “buddies.”

Special Friends Camp will not be offered in 2022 due to the continued impact of the covid-19 pandemic.
