Adventure Camps

Adventure Camp is a sleep-away camp full of fun, challenge and adventure!
Campers with mild to moderate developmental delays or disabilities enjoy activities that expand their social horizons and develop their courage to try new things while increasing independence and confidence.

About Adventure Camp

  • Campers participate in daily adventures which may include zip-lining, archery, river-rafting, alpine slide rides, swimming, hiking/nature walks, wall climb, campfires, cabin games, and a camp-wide dance
  • Designed for youth (ages 9 and older) and adults with mild to moderate support needs related to developmental disabilities
    • This program is not a match for those whose primary diagnosis is an emotional, behavioral, or psychiatric disorder
  • Campers must be mobile and enjoy group activities
  • Campers stay in family-style cabins with counselors, volunteers and peers
  • Our staffing of two experienced counselors and four volunteers per team of ten campers allows for individualized relationships with each camper. We do not provide one-on-one support services.

Scholarships and Additional Funding Resources

The team at Adam’s Camp recognizes that families of those with special needs already have extra challenges and extra expenses. We want to ensure that participation in the programs of Adam’s Camp is possible for every family, regardless of financial or insurance status.  We do this by…

  • Charging tuition that represents only about 50% of actual program costs
  • Providing over $60,000 each year in additional funds to families in need of greater assistance through our scholarship program
  • Connecting families with outside organizations that may contribute to a family’s tuition
  • Working with Community-Centered Boards (CCB) to explore potential agency funding

We encourage families to contact the Adam’s Camp team regarding financial support options and to apply for scholarship funding. Adam’s Camp awards scholarships for partial support of tuition fees based numerous considerations, not just financial need.
