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.

Medical Information: Two full time nurses are available to dispense medications and provide First Aid. Campers on medication should bring a seven (7) day supply and a written instruction sheet (see Medical Summary Form on the application) on dosages and times to be dispensed (bottle labels will not be sufficient). An infirmary is also available if necessary. Copies of Medical Administration Record (MAR), TennCare/Medicare cards or other insurance information should accompany application.  Regretfully, we are unable to accept campers who require tube-feeding, catheters, colostomy and/or one-on-one care. Refer any questions regarding who can/cannot attend camp to the director.
