is a unique camp held for the past 20 years for
families who have a child under the age of 4 with a
cognitive, developmental or mental health disability. It
offers a number
of different services for families.
1. For parents, Camp TLC is an opportunity to attend workshops related to their child's disability and network with other parents and the speakers. Topics may include: speech, behavior, therapy and/or medical issues, father's support group and mother's support group.
2. For the little ones requiring specialized childcare, we will have a staff of doctors and nurses available during the presentations and workshops.
3. For all siblings, there will be supervised activities at designated times, such as arts and crafts, swimming, and much more.
Camp is held over one weekend each year. The entire family is encouraged to attend and camp is designed to bring the family together to get away from the hassles of everyday life. Camp is a huge undertaking, requiring over 100 volunteers. Parents who have attended camp often say how comfortable they felt leaving their children in the hands of our qualified volunteers. The care and attention each child receives is first-rate. We have space for between 35-40 families to attend each year. Please call us if you are interested in attending camp as either a family or a volunteer.
the Best experiences our family has ever had!!"
“I enjoyed the sense of community and being with other families with kids like ours. The support and kindness of the volunteers was great.”
“The amount of resources available was tremendous. The atmosphere of the weekend has energized me to work with my daughter even harder than before. It was reinforcing to be with other parents facing similar issues. It was great to get away from it all with my husband and daughter in such peaceful surroundings.”
“Hearing the speaker’s insights on lived disabilities was great because it really brought great hope for our child.”
“I appreciated all the loving care given to my children so that I could truly listen and learn from the speakers without wondering if they were okay.
