Welcome to the Everyone Cares Camp website!
We’re glad you’re here!
Our vision is to see a world where all God’s children are included, cared for, loved, and served equally in a way that draws them closer to Him.
Everyone cares camp is a overnight summer camp created for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Here the campers are paired one-on-one with counselors to give them a personal summer camp experience where their needs are taken care of. The goal is to give the individuals a chance to feel normal, express themselves, and enjoy a few days of the summer camp experience with a spiritual emphasis! Additionally, it provides a few days of respite for caregivers. Everyone Cares Camp has been serving individuals with special needs for 50+ years. Not only does this provide an incredible experience for the campers, but it also creates disciples of God’s children, as counselors learn to put their buddy’s needs before their own.
Our 2019 theme is Fun on the Farm and we will again be running 2 sessions of camp: July 20-22, and July 23-25. Head over to our volunteer or camper pages and find out how to join us on our adventure this year.
As you may know, we have been busy in the winter months trying to raise some money to support camp. Have you joined the CAMPaign yet? Our goal is to raise enough money to not have to worry about raising camper costs for the next 5 years. Please consider donating to help us meet that goal. You can head over to our donation page and make a donation online. You can give donations directly to a staff member or mail checks to the Chicago Central District office. You can purchase something from the Amazon wish list. You can join our snack team or you could help us connect with church or business partners that would be willing to donate financially.
Camp is just a few months away and we are already excited about all that God is doing and will do as we prepare this year!
