Come to Camp

The Camp

Camp Aranzazu is open year-round and welcomes both children and adults. We can accommodate up to 135 campers and their support staff in our air-conditioned, recently-constructed cabins. Our barrier-free facility, specialized equipment, highly-trained staff, and dedicated health center make it possible for campers of varying abilities to enjoy all the activities we offer. A partial list is below.

Summer is dedicated to serving children and adults with special needs and chronic illnesses. In the off-season, we also welcome school groups, leadership organizations, and corporate and church retreats.  Camp Aranzazu also is an ideal location for weddings and special events.
