Summer Special Needs Programs
Walcamp is a safe and exciting place for loads of fun; where campers make new friends, enjoy nature, and grow in God’s word.  Campers develop strong relationships with their peers as well as with counselors and staff, and are reassured on a daily basis how much they matter to God.

Our goal is to help campers discover different ways to serve the Lord every day. Through our specially designed programs campers are encouraged to participate in a wide range of activities to keep them mobile and having fun!

Each week at Walcamp we offer programs to campers of all ages, stages, and abilities.  This means that our Special Needs Campers can be involved in large group games and activities with the rest of the campers, or be a part of a small group walking around our beautiful property taking in all the sights and sounds.  Through this flexible schedule campers will grow in self-achievement, independence, confidence, and self-respect.

Come join the fun!  There is something for everyone as campers enjoy new experiences and challenges and taking great strides along their faith journey.

Special Needs Weekend Retreats
Worried about spending a whole week away from home?  Having trouble fitting a whole week of summer camp into your schedule?  Looking for a way to experience camp year round?

If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions we encourage you to try one of our Special Needs Weekend Retreats.  Arrive Friday evening, enjoy games, crafts, music, and Bible study on Saturday, with special off-site fun.  Saturday night is a blast.  You will have an opportunity to show off your skills during a talent show.  In addition, you will receive  an award celebrating all you’ve achieved during the weekend.  Enjoy a nice brunch on Sunday and wrap things up after a devotion and closing ceremony.  When you leave Walcamp you will have made new friends!  Weekend retreats are open to campers of all ages.

Walcamp’s Special Needs program has a long history of reliability and tradition. Both children and adults are welcome to participate in a variety of  activities such as singing, playing games, winter hikes, indoor crafts, decorating cookies, an off-site recreational experience, and more!  Saturday night rounds out the event with a talent show and pageant – a ton of fun!  If you are interesed please contact us at:815-784-5141 or email office@walcamp.org
