Special Needs Camp

Rock ‘n Roll

Dean: Lori Conley
Check-in: June 28 @ 6:30pm
Parent Pick-up: July 1 @ 10:30am

It’s a rock ‘n roll weekend for special needs kids 3rd grade through age 24. We will have 2 camps going on at once; 3rd grade-15 years old and 16-24 years old.

We will be rock stars as we focus on the theme verse Psalm 19:14:

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.”

Jesus is the rock and that’s how we roll!!!

Special Needs Camp Junior is designed for those entering 3rd Grade through 15 years old.

Special Needs Camp Senior is designed for those 16-24 years old.

Campers may choose to bring a buddy, caregiver, or medical companion. A buddy will come with a registered camper to help them adapt to the camp experience.  The cost to be a buddy is $165 ($145 before April 30).  A caregiver must be 18 yrs. or older and is attending to provide support and be a caregiver for a special needs camper already registered.  The cost to be a caregiver is $60 ($50 before April 30).  A Medical Companion must have medical experience and be 18 yrs. or older. Medical Companions are attending to provide medical care and be a caregiver for a special needs camper already registered.  There is no charge for a Medical Companion.  Each must register and pay separately.

About the Dean

Where are you involved at church?
Our home church is Community Christian Church in Bethel but due to our work with Empower Youth, we spend most Sundays sharing about Empower Youth to different churches and youth groups.
What is your favorite Bible verse? 
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14:12)
What does camp ministry mean to you? 
This is the last hold out for students to meet Jesus and nurture their relationship with him. When the week is done right, it has a greater impact than a year of Sundays.
