Summer Camp is a series of six-day, five-night sessions for children and adults, aged 5 to 50 years, with a variety of special needs, and their siblings.
The Summer Camp sessions are held at Camp CAMP in Center Point, Texas. Camp CAMP has 55 acres and includes activities like canoeing on the Guadalupe River, horseback riding, swimming, music, sports & recreation, arts & crafts, and outdoor cooking. CAMP modifies traditional summer camp activities to include everyone, regardless of the severity of the camper’s physical or developmental needs. Each camper is assigned to a Tribe based on gender and age with a camper:counselor ratio ranging from 1:1 to 4:1, depending on the need of the camper.
Counselors are trained by CAMP staff and stay with the Tribe day and night. The cabins are large, climate controlled, and wheelchair accessible. Meals can be modified to accommodate special dietary needs and spaces are available for campers who need 24 hour medical care, dependent on sessions. Camper’s medical needs and medication administration are overseen by professional Health Care Volunteers.
Each of the 9 Summer Camp sessions has varied age requirements and diagnosis guidelines; Sessions are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The Summer Camp application becomes available in February 2017.
