Camp Courageous is a year-round recreational and respite care facility for individuals with disabilities. In its 38th year of serving those with special needs, a volunteer board of directors governs the camp. This year Camp Courageous will serve over 6,000 campers with special needs. The camp is run on donations, without government assistance, without formal sponsorship, and without paid fundraisers. What this means is everything that is donated to the camp goes directly to benefit the campers. Camp Courageous is available 24-hours a day, 365-days a year to meet the emergency needs of families with a special needs family member living at home.
