Active Faith-Based Camps

Operated by Christian or Jewish organizations, these camps provide a broad range of outdoor activities.

You don't have to be religious to work in these camps, just open-minded.

Types of Camps

Campers with Special Needs

These camps serve children and adults with disabilities. Some camps focus on providing adaptive facilities for physical limitations, some serve campers with developmental disabilities/behavioural challenges, and others integrate special needs campers into traditional camp settings. You don't need previous training in working with special needs, just the willingness to learn.
