What We Do Upward Bound Camp's mission is to provide on-going Christian based recreational and educational camp experiences for persons with disabilities, twelve years of age and over in an environment that presents opportunities for growth outside the individual’s usual routine or habitat.
Upward Bound supports the belief that every person is important, created by God, worthy of love and caring service. Camp gives every person the opportunity to realize and share their gifts and individual special abilities. Affiliation and Accreditation Upward Bound Camp, a state licensed program founded in 1978, is proud to be accredited by the American Camping Association. As a nationally recognized program focusing on program quality, health and safety issues, ACA requires review of every facet of operation annually.
Upward Bound voluntarily submits to this independent appraisal conducted by experts in the camp field and has earned a mark of distinction and excellence. The camp directors have over fifty years experience in the management of camping for individuals with special needs. They believe every camper deserves a camp experience that is reviewed and accredited by experts. UBC wants to provide the best for the campers they serve and love. Being accredited by ACA demonstrates that commitment to providing the best in health, safety and program quality. The accreditation process is quite comprehensive and thorough. Currently, accreditation is held by only 25% of all day and resident camps.
Upward Bound is proud to to be fully accredited!
