Important Changes to Catholic Charities Camp I Am Special – Summer 2021


Given the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated risks, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person residential and day camp sessions for Catholic Charities Camp I Am Special for summer 2021. Our team will work diligently in the coming months to develop a robust virtual summer camp to offer our Campers and their families. 



We will provide updates and more information about our virtual summer sessions at ccbjax.org/camp-i-am-special. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these waters to ensure our Campers are both safe and supported.
