Celebrating special children. Renewing their families.
Weekend Adventures are fun and exciting camping weekends for children (ages 6-17) with intellectual disabilities. Jill’s House nurses and staff tailor all of the exciting weekend activities to the interests and abilities of each camper to provide an engaging and safe camping experience they can’t get anywhere else! And local churches, schools, or social clubs supply volunteers to act as "buddies" to the campers to help them get the most out of all their weekend. Meanwhile, the campers’ families receive a weekend of respite to recharge, knowing their kids are in good hands.
Every aspect of the weekend is designed to provide the best camper experience possible. Dietary restrictions are accounted for, professional nurses are always on site, and all staff and volunteers are thoroughly trained and excited to spend time with these special kids.
