Pine Lake Camp is a positive, Christian environment. We understand that the special needs community has a variety of strengths, needs, talents and gifts. We do our best to encourage personal growth with each of our campers by letting them determine their own level of participation. Our staff helps bridge the gap so as many campers as possible can have a full camp experience.
Adult Special Needs programs at Pine Lake Camp are best for people who are:
Mild to moderately developmentally disabled and able to be supported fully by a 1:5 staff to guest ratio.
Reasonably proficient in activities of daily living such as eating, toileting, bathing and shaving; counselors will assist campers in these activities as needed.
Able to sleep through the night; no awake 3rd shift provided.
Over the age of 18; many of our campers are in the 30-55 age range.
Those that don’t meet the self-care criteria may bring a trained attendant. Attendants/companions are charged half the camp rate. Individuals with a degree of severe to profound disabilities are not eligible due to the limitations of the volunteer staff.
Our facilities are smoke free environments.
Rules for acceptance and participation are the same for everyone without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, or age.
We reserve the right to evaluate the camper after arrival at camp and send the camper home if he/she is not able to care for his/her own basic daily living needs.
