Each year Camp PARC welcomes mentally challenged individuals, ranging in age from 6 - 85. These special campers are greeted by an estimated energetic and compassionate high school through college student volunteers known as junior counselors. Junior counselors are assigned one or two campers and are in direct care of them at all times throughout the week of camp. These counselors provide round-the-clock care and services, as well as participate with their camper in recreation, sports, crafts and entertainment revolving around an annual theme.
Camp PARC is committed to providing an unsurpassed summer experience for both campers and counselors. This unique environment – pairing volunteer high school and college students with mentally challenged individuals – creates an unparalleled sense of community. Through this community, Camp PARC consistently delivers a dynamic and fun-filled summer camping program, as well as offering campers and staff the true feeling of acceptance into society.
