Other Camp Options

Respite Camp:

Mini respite camps are offered during the school year for school age youth. The goal of the program is to provide a safe recreational event for individuals with developmental disabilities and to allow caregivers an opportunity to run errands or just relax.  Respite camps will be announced as they become available.

Camp Facilities:

Camp Paradise provides a wonderful environment for both indoor and outdoor activities.  Established in 1967, the facilities include a lodge, sleeping cabins, craft cabin, two picnic pavilions, the Stone Natatorium (with both a pool and a whirlpool), basketball court and therapeutic play area. The camp can be utilized by outside groups and organizations for meeting space and by community members for reunions, parties and other special events.
