Camp for developmentally disabled adults
Christikon — Camp for Developmentally Disabled Adults Dates: June 13-16, 2017 (Tuesday supper through Friday breakfast).
Location: Christikon lies along the Boulder River in the mountains just north of Yellowstone National Park, about 50 miles south of Big Timber, Montana.
Group Home and Volunteer Counselors: We appreciate having adult volunteers join us to supplement the work of our counseling staff.
Moreover, if several group home clients are attending the camp together, it is often helpful to have one or more of the group home staff join us at Christikon during the session, so we might better serve the campers.
Every summer, developmentally disabled adults spend a month on Zeno Mountain in Lincoln, Vermont.
Some of them get to live in wheelchair accessible treehouses, ride a water slide into a pond and put on a musical in a big barn.
Personal growth and enrichment, rather than religious indoctrination, are our goals for this camp session.
Religious activities are a part of the program, but no one is required to participate who objects for religious reasons.
The event will bring out resource vendors to provide families with medical, dental, developmental, and mental health screenings, pro bono legal clinic, and educational workshops to improve overall health and wellness, and more. Congrats #Irvine Awards recipient @Areva Martin Read More As part of our campaign to support families in crisis, we offer you the chance to contribute to our life-changing, transformational programs which have already impacted the lives of thousands – whether they face an urgent need, a devastating diagnosis, or seek to improve their quality of life.
Jon Kalish (@kalishjon) reports on a unique summer camp.
It is the mission of Christikon to awaken and nurture faith in Christ – exploring God’s creation and the adventure of life together.
Because funds are limited, we are able to provide no more than in scholarship aid per person.
Scholarship aid should be requested when a camper is registered.
