A summer camp geared towards individuals with special needs.

Camp Discovery exists to allow anyone with a physical or mental disability to experience the the joy that is summer camp. The memories created at camp can have profound and lasting positive effects.

If you know an individual with special needs who would love to attend camp this summer, please contact Chester Lowe at 615-504-1727 or “Apply to Camp” above.
