CAMP I AM SPECIAL 2021
PLEASE NOTE: The content below is from 2021's Virtual Camp I Am Special. To access current camp information, please visit this page.
In 2021, Catholic Charities Jacksonville hosted Camp I Am Special in a virtual format from June 7 – July 23. The free program was designed for individuals of all ages and ability levels, including those with intellectual and developmental differences (IDDs).
Campers both past and present can access this virtual experience through a new, dynamic web portal that
includes activities that range from Zumba classes and dance parties to sign language lessons and arts and crafts. Accredited by the American Camp Association, this program is focused on creativity and connectivity – while also providing respite for parents at home during these unique times.
Registration for the web portal is required to access the program. By registering, Campers will set up a unique user name and password to access the content and interact with their fellow Campers and Buddies.
Help Us Fund Camp This Year & Beyond
Camp I Am Special is completely free for families this year due to the generosity of our donors, and the enhancements to our programs were made possible through a gift from the Chartrand Foundation. If you are in a position to give, we are continuing to raise funds for this year’s program and next year’s in-person sessions.
