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.
Our Hope for 2022 is to resume our regular overnight camp with ONE session Tuesday July 26-Friday July 29th.
Everyone cares camp is an 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.
Due to the ongoing nature of uncertainty as we head back to normal from the pandemic we have tentatively scheduled a return to overnight camp in 2022. Dickson Valley is interested in retaining us as one of their summer groups, an honor which has been given to very few ministries. Head over to our volunteer or camper pages after May 2nd and find out how to join us on our adventure this year.
As you may know, we are always 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. There are so many ways you can help. You can head over to our donation page and make a donation online, give donations directly to a staff member or mail checks to the Chicago Central District office. You can also purchase something from the Amazon wish list, or connect us with church or businesses that would be willing to partner with us financially.
