Camp Courageous provides recreational and respite programs for nearly 7,000 individuals of all ages with special needs each year. The camp was started in 1974, and the first buildings were built with donated materials by volunteers. Volunteers and donors remain the backbone of the camp which is open year round and run on donations.

Supporters can stop by an information table and drop off needed items such as bread, non-perishable food, 55 gallon sized trash bags, napkins, and more. Volunteers will be on hand with a more extensive list of needs and to help Stuff the Bus!
