Here at Camp Sharing Meadows, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp, whether that's a short weekend camp or a long week of camp! Unfortunately, for some of our other-abled friends, they may have never had this experience. That's why we work so hard to get everyone to camp through subsidizing our costs and ensuring parents, staff, and local agencies that their loved ones are cared for when they drop their camper off for a camp full of adventures and memories!
Camp Sharing Meadows includes traditional camp activities such as barbeques, arts and crafts, dances, and campfires that provide other-abled adults with much need socialization. Other-abled campers are culturally diverse groups of men and women who further enrich the camp experience. Most significant, however, are the values discussion groups that allow the campers to tap into their most private emotions concerning issues like “forgiveness” or “trust” or “self-esteem." A central part of every camp, these sessions validate and honor the individual-affirmations important for all of us, but especially for the other-abled.
Camp Sharing Meadows hosts camps for other-abled adults all year round! In February, March, April, May, September, October, November, and December, we host monthly overnight Mini-Camps at our camp building from Friday night at 7 PM CST to Sunday afternoon around 2 PM CST. In June and July, we have 6 weeks of overnight camp from Sunday at 4 PM CST to Friday at 1 PM CST.
