Come volunteer and encounter people who may be different from you.   You will gain the opportunity to see abilities in everyone.  Together we can make inclusion happen for Buddies, Campers, volunteers and our community. With over 30 years of experience in providing specialized and individualized services, Camp I Am Special has always maintained our focus on modifying and accommodating traditional camp activities to meet the special needs of persons with disabilities. Camp I Am Special provides a nurturing and interactive atmosphere with friendship-building opportunities for every Camper.   We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities including on and off-season office support, group projects, indoor and outdoor opportunities, projects for Girl and Boy Scouts and short term summer opportunities.

What Others Are Saying

"I am so grateful to have spent another week of caring, loving, and friendship at this amazing Camp. It really is one of the only places that gives everyone, Buddies and Campers alike, the chance to be who they truly are in a judgement free environment.


Camp not only helps us become closer to God, but it helps us find Jesus in each person. I always find myself not quite wanting to leave once the week comes to an end, and that is what keeps me coming back. I am so thankful for the friendships I have made this past week and I can't wait to come back next summer!"
