GOOD WORKS FARM DAYCAMP/RESPITE 2021
Camp brings families together
I loved camp and I loved the attitude everyone had towards the campers. Having a sister that is special needs can sometimes give you weird looks but at camp everyone was so devoted to the campers it was amazing. Thank you for all the effort you put into the campers and thanks for allowing me to help. -S
OUR HISTORY: Since 2015, Good Works Farm has provided a week-long summer day camp for individuals, age 5 and older, with a developmental disability and their typical siblings. Family participation is a big component of camp as older siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, and friends volunteer as group leaders, buddies, and in many other ways. Without the support of volunteers, camp would not be possible.
This camp, held on our farm extension, provides opportunities to explore nature, spend time with new friends and old, strengthen family ties, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Past activities have included:
Therapy dog visits
Fire Department visits
Family time at camp
We keep our camp prices as low as possible and we rely heavily on donations and sponsors to support our campers. We also accept Medicaid Waiver Community Respite funds, county funds, grant funds, and private pay.
