Woodland Christian Camp is excited to announce a new focus camp for 2018 – Camp Discovery, a free weekend respite camp for children with intellectual disabilities. Camp Discovery will be held on the grounds of Woodland at their Heritage Camp on August 17-19, 2018. This overnight residential program will provide the opportunity for students to enjoy traditional camp activities in a fun environment and will be led by certified professionals and trained volunteers. Children age 13-22 are welcome to apply.
Woodland Christian Camp, the host organization for Camp Discovery, was established in 1969. Woodland has a long history of establishing programs that have great impact on youth and
assist families in the community.
“The Camp Discovery volunteers and Woodland Camp staff are very excited about this special program.” said Joey Westbrook, Executive Director. Certified and specially trained volunteers will be led by Program Directors Mandy Anderson and Ashley
