CAMPERS - What it's all about...
We put the HAPPY in campers! Each summer the Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp hosts two weeks of camping fun and adventures for children and adults with significant disabilities.
Great adventures begin at Civitan Camp! Recreational activities include canoeing, swimming, biking, recreation, hiking, tubing, art, boating, fishing—and even a spa! Adaptations are made to enable everyone to participate in activities. Our goal is for every camp friend to participant, no matter what their abilities are, and to have a safe, fun camping experience.
Youth Week hosts 85 campers with cognitive disabilities from young children up to age 23.
Adult Camping Vacation includes 100 adults with cognitive disabilities from young adult age to middle age.
Fall Adult Camp hosts 50 adults, often those who did not attend during the summer.
The camp administrative staff accepts camp participants based on the ability of the staff and counselors to meet individual needs given the nature of the camp environment. Those residing in South Mississippi are given priority, and rarely is space available for anyone outside Mississippi. Children and adults who reside in a family home are given priority, as compared to independent living or group home.
