Providing on-going Christian based recreational camp experiences for persons with disabilities, twelve years of age and over, in an environment which presents opportunities for growth outside the individuals usual surroundings or routine.
The American Camping Association affirms statistically that camp retreats and organized camp sessions are still rated the number one activity of children and adults. There is no other type of recreational environment offering people as much variety in activity, adventures, good food, and fun for so little money.
Upward Bound Camp is a bargain. For as little as $232.25 per overnight stay; costing less than other vacations, participants access a team of certified staff that are there to provide personal care, lodging, meals, a full program of meaningful activities with materials and the amenities of any resort plus membership and a camp shirt!
People return to camp every year because it is a place for building special long lasting friendships and experiencing renewal both in spirit and body. Additionally camp often provides client caregivers with some much needed refreshment.
Celebrating service since 1978, and a 99% camper return rate (without additional advertising) speaks to the quality of the Upward Bound Camp experience. All our camps are fully attended with most campers registered for a summer experience before the end of April.
You, the participant, are what Upward Bound Camp is all about. Our programming is specifically designed to meet your needs, pace and interests. We want every moment of your experience to be a memorable and refreshing one!
