Thank you for your interest in St. Francis Camp on the Lake.
St. Francis Camp on the Lake provides a personalized summer camp experience for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Our camp staff dedicates their summers to ensure the best care for all of St. Francis Camp on the Lake's campers.The main objectives of camp are met through careful planning of sessions and modifying activities to meet the campers' needs, skills, interests and ages. Careful consideration is given to placement of each camper with the most suitable groups and activities.
Campers are encouraged to partake in a wide array of activities which may include: Boating; Arts & Crafts; Fishing; Hiking; Sing-a-Longs; Aquatic Games; Dances; Campfires; Volleyball; Basketball: plus much, much more! Each activity is taught with a hands-on approach, allowing for a heightened awareness of all senses. This stimulation helps accelerate learning and makes it FUN! Our adaptive equipment enables everyone the chance to participate.
Parents, family and friends arriving early on Friday morning will have the opportunity for a discussion with staff concerning the accomplishments of their camper during the camp week. Visits outside of Friday morning are discouraged since they disrupt campers and daily activities. We suggest cheerful letters to keep in touch with campers during their stay.
