Come to Camp
Everyone can enjoy and benefit time at camp, regardless of any physical or developmental challenges. The camp serves children and adults of all ages with wide variety of challenges, including epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, Down syndrome, autism, cancer, spina bifida, asthma, cerebral palsy, diabetes, kidney disease, adolescent obesity, head and spinal cord injuries, neurological differences, and hearing and sight impairments.
Our three full-time Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists work with each camping group, tailoring their activities to meet the group's specific goals and objectives.
Camp Aranzazu has a unique program philosophy called "Intentional Camping," which is "the purposeful design of a camping experience to nurture the physical, social, emotional, and mental development of each child." With this in mind, we work with each camping partner to customize their camping session so that meets their specific goals and objectives. Generally speaking, our goals are the following:
1. To challenge campers' beliefs about themselves and their capabilities;
2. To increase their confidence and help them have fun and explore exciting new pursuits; and
3. To help them make friends and develop a social support network that can provide support long after the camping session has ended.
