-Ecclesiastes 12:13

This camp is for kids ages Kindergarten through 21.

 

The limit for this camp will be 7 children with special needs and 7 peer models.  

Children who qualify for this camp will have declared mental of physical special needs as defined by a doctor or IEP.  

All campers who register may also bring a sibling peer model or parent.  This is not mandatory as there will be Camp Christy volunteer ratio of 1 adult to 2 children.  

This camp will be offered free in 2021 due to a grant given by the Western Kansas Community Foundation and private scholarships.
