Camp Courage is a 4-day/3-night, all-inclusive summer camping program for
adults with special needs, including Down syndrome, birth defects, cognitive
delays and high functioning Autism. This program is held each June, in
Stewartsville, Missouri. Camping fee: $200, which includes overnight accommodations, meals, t-shirt, activities and prizes. (That's less than $45 per day!)
Campers enjoy typical camping activities such as fishing, hay wagon rides,
crafts and music; as well as Bingo, dance parties and an evening of
carnival game fun! This program is ideal for individuals who enjoy outdoor
activities and are comfortable being away from their home environment.
Participants must be able to walk, shower, dress and feed themselves
independently. Participants must be cooperative, enjoy being around other
people and pose no flight risk.
This camp is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, with funding generated by camper registrations, individual and group donations, and fundraising efforts of volunteers. This program would love
to receive donations from local businesses and organizations. We could use t-shirts, give-a-ways, prizes, assistance with groceries, and so much more! If you can help, or know someone who can,
