Welcome to Camp ReCreation
Founded in 1975, Camp ReCreation is a Christian summer camp for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Camp ReCreation aims to pair young adult counselors with campers who have special needs on a one-to-one basis. As they participate in each day’s activities, this pairing builds bridges of understanding and friendship. Camp ReCreation promotes respect, community involvement, and volunteerism.
This life-changing experience takes place at the Richardton-Taylor High School in Richardton, North Dakota. Camp activities include, but are not limited to, group activities like crafts, music, games, and faith formation, as well as special events such as bowling, swimming, a dance, carnival, picnics, and live entertainment.
**Camp ReCreation 2020 Update**
To our Camp ReCreation family,
After ample consideration the Camp ReCreation board of directors has made the difficult decision to cancel our June 2020 camp sessions. During these uncertain times we feel it is of the utmost importance to keep our camp family healthy and safe. We understand how this decision impacts all involved and with the Lord’s help we continue to work toward fulfilling our ministry.
The board of directors is working diligently to keep Camp ReCreation together in spirit and as we see fit, anticipates camp holding a social outreach event later in the year. This plan is not to replace the two weeks of camp but to ensure we keep our camp friends and family in touch. Please stay tuned for further updates on how Camp ReCreation wants to continue to instill hope, love and faith in the hearts of all those involved.
We look forward to seeing you next year at Camp ReCreation 2021 when we will be back in full swing and, through God’s grace, stronger than ever!
The Camp ReCreation Board of Directors
