Please call us before registering your child for camp so we can discuss your child’s individual needs. By discussing your child and the outcomes you desire for him or her while he or she is at camp with us ahead of time, together we can determine whether camp would be a good fit. We can assess whether our counselors would have the specific skills needed to care for and provide the specialized attention that a child with intellectual disabilities or other special needs may require while at camp. This conversation will be an important first step toward achieving our shared goal: creating a successful camp experience for your child.

Doug is passionate about Presbyterian camp ministry and brings with him a wealth of experience and creativity in his role as Executive Director. It was at summer camp, as a Counselor-in-Training many years back, that Doug came to understand that God gives each of us special gifts and talents and calls us to serve as Christ’s hands and feet in the world. In addition to his passion for “all things camp,” Doug has a passion for pizza, and makes a pretty mean homemade, from-scratch pie that rivals any you’d find at your local pizzeria.
