Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children and young adults with special needs through operation of Summer Camp and Camp Out programs, and other recreational and educational activities.


Camp Dream offers recreational Summer Camp and Camp Out programs for children and young adults with moderate to severe physical and developmental disabilities. Camp Dream programs are 100% volunteer, providing a 1:1 camper to counselor ratio during its Summer Camp sessions. Camp Dream offers a barrier free environment and has never turned away a camper due to the severity of their disability or their financial capability.

What really sets Camp Dream apart is its Volunteers. From the Program Director to the Junior Counselor, Camp Dream Volunteers are passionate. Volunteers come from near and far to ensure our special Campers are able to fulfill their dreams each summer, and during Camp Out sessions throughout the year. 

Because we believe that all children and young adults with a disability, regardless of their financial situation, have a right to recreational and social experiences that enhance self-worth and value, we rely on the generosity of donors and sponsors to allow those Campers who are unable to pay the ability to attend Camp Dream.

As any of our campers will tell you, the number one rule at Camp Dream is to have fun.  Play is an incredibly significant but often undervalued part of a child's social, cognitive, and emotional development. This is especially important to children and young adults with disabilities, as their opportunities for social interaction and growth are often significantly limited. 

Camp Dream imparts a greater sense of self-worth to each of our Campers.  Our Staff and Counselors work very closely with each Camper to provide an individualized experience, so each and every Camper has FUN, while also feeling empowered to find success in their daily lives long after leaving camp.

Camp dream means the world to my family and especially my daughter Ashley. Ashley has been attending Camp Dream for over 12 YEARS and loves it so much that once she gets home Camp she ask how many months before she can go ago, She has made some awesome friends and the counselors there are GOD Sent and are wonderful with all the campers. I cannot think of anywhere else that I would want my daughter to spend some of her summer.Thank You Camp Dream from the bottom of my heart. Cathy Payne
