Weekend camp program for persons with developmental disabilities.
Children with developmental disabilities benefit greatly from a summer of activity, self-discovery and routine. Positive experiences that develop self-confidence and independence are like seeds waiting to bloom when students return to school in the fall.
For over 40 years, Christopher Discovery Camps have offered unique camping and travel experiences for persons with developmental disabilities. Whether it’s spending a week or weekend at Camp Christopher in Bath, OH or boarding a bus and heading to an exciting destination, Christopher Discovery Camps provide the opportunity to experience new things and see new places, while improving social skills and independence.
