Faith, Fun and Friendship for kids with special needs!
You may have even seen info about God’s Special Kids Camp in the Modesto Bee (camp story here, volunteer story here) or heard about us on K-LOVE (interview here). God is doing something pretty amazing – and we are very excited!!
Why do a camp just for kids with special needs?
Kids with special needs, such as cognitive, developmental or physical disabilities and other health conditions, especially need to know they are uniquely valued and loved! A regular summer camp can be great, but our smaller specialized camp can make accommodations that will enhance each child’s experience. At God’s Special Kids Camp, each child is paired with a teen or adult buddy to receive individual attention for an absolutely awesome camp experience. We want each child to experience God’s love in a very personal and tangible way!
God’s Special Kids Camp is designed for kids ages 5-12. Older kids whose cognitive functioning and physical needs fit in the 5-12 age range are also welcome! Camp begins with an optional Open House Day on June 16 2:30-3:30pm for parents to meet camp staff, and for campers to bond with their buddies and to experience a mini-version of the camp program. A great way to start off an amazing camp! After the Open House, from June 17-19, the camp hours are 2:30-4:45pm.
