The 36th summer of Catholic Charities Camp I Am Special is in full swing! We are excited about our theme, “Superhero Academy,” because each of our 250 Campers has unique superpowers. Camp is the ideal place for children and adults with intellectual and developmental differences to shine as their true selves.
This year, we have been focusing on life skills and super-sized fun, especially with the debut of The Chartrand Family Camp I Am Special Playground. Each Camper is paired with a volunteer high school Buddy for one-on-one companionship, while the professional staff ensures safety and provides medical supervision. Parents and caregivers of our Campers can enjoy peace of mind, plus much-needed rest and relaxation of their own.
You can also be a champion by making a gift to help provide the summer camp experience for a deserving Camper. Although Camper fees are set at about half of the actual cost of Camp, there are many families who cannot afford to send their loved ones to Camp for a week.
Please consider making a donation today! You can also go to campiamspecial.org to find out more about our awesome program. Thank you for your super support!
P.S. Please make your gift lightning fast so we can continue have an extraordinary summer!
