A Special Place for Special Kids

What is Camp Blessing?

Camp Blessing makes an iconic childhood experience—summer camp–available to children with special needs whose challenges prevent their participation elsewhere.  Camp Blessing is a residential Christian summer camp offering love, acceptance and fun to children and young adults with special needs and their siblings.  We believe that our amazing campers, regardless of ability level,  should have all of the fun of summer camp.  Everything is customized to make camp accessible, from our specially trained staff, facility and activities, to our menus and clinic.  We are custom-designed to meet the varying needs of campers diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities who may also use wheelchairs, walkers or crutches.  All they have to do is show up and be treated like rock stars.  Our goal is for campers to be engulfed by God’s love and to have the time of their lives!

Since 2006, more than 2,600 campers, accompanied by 4,100 one-on-one counselors, have enjoyed activities adapted to individual ability levels including; canoeing, archery, horseback riding, water games, ropes course, zip line, rock wall, fishing, arts and crafts, theme nights, and music.  We are honored to say that our campers return year after year to experience the love of Christ lived out at Camp Blessing!

"Our whole family has been so blessed by Megan's experience with Camp Blessing Texas! She was a different creature when she came home. She's even working on her tolerance with her sister! I had to ask, 'who are you and what have you done with Megan?!?!"
