Camp Courageous is a year-round recreational and respite care facility for individuals with disabilities. Campers with intellectual and physical disabilities, brain injuries, hearing or visual impairments, autism and other special needs are served.

Working with children and adults with special needs is often a very real challenge. Campers may need help with personal care including feeding, dressing, and bathroom needs. Some campers exhibit behavioral challenges. Patience, energy, good judgment and enthusiasm are important qualifications for a position at Camp Courageous. The hours are long. An unselfish attitude and an emphasis on teamwork are needed. Staff are expected to put the campers’ needs before their own. If you possess the necessary attributes, I invite you to apply for a position at Camp Courageous.
