This special needs camp is designed especially for Kids & Adults with special needs who are age 8 and up. During the camp, Campers will enjoy games, activities, worship & Bible time designed with their special needs in mind.
Special Needs Camp (ground)
It is held at Tall Timbers Baptist Conference Center in Woodworth, Louisiana. Housing is in dorm style rooms with plenty of lower bunks for our special needs campers. Motel-style housing is also available at Lee Lodge. Contact Tall Timbers for pricing.
Campers are children and adults from age 8 and up who have intellectual, physical, or developmental disabilities. During the camp, Campers will enjoy games, activities, worship & Bible time designed with their special needs in mind.
* Campers must have no life-threatening condition nor contagious disease. All disabilities must be listed on the online registration form. A responsible adult or teen, designated as a Buddy, must accompany each Camper. Campers that do not have a buddy to attend with them will be assigned a buddy upon arrival at camp.
A buddy is a responsible adult or teen (16 years and up) who has the desire to serve with those with Special Needs. They can be people who have worked or work currently with special needs individuals, are family members of special needs individuals or anyone else who wants to serve those with special needs. Previous experience working with special needs individuals is NOT required.
This is a great opportunity for a high school or college age service time.
* There are opportunities for other staff at this camp also. We are specifically in need of a nurse that can commit to being at camp to help handle medications and other issues that arise. If this interests you then please contact our office about this opportunity.
