Mission Statement

Our foundation of vibrant faith in Jesus Christ, we live with purposeful excellence, compassionate engagement, and joyful service. We exist to love families towards Jesus and reduce their stress by providing long breaks for families of children with intellectual disabilities. We hope to change the face of disability ministry in America by ensuring that every family of a child with an intellectual disability has respite within reach and a connection to a church that embraces them.

Description

Jill's House Weekend Adventures is a three-day camp experience for children with intellectual disabilities, where they get to enjoy an incredible weekend just for them, while their families receive some much-needed respite. At Weekend Adventures, special children (ages 6-17) create memories and friendships through activities like hayrides, hikes, crafts, games, talent shows, ropes courses, swimming and more. At the same time, they are surrounded by caring and committed onsite medical personnel, child care specialists, staff, and one-on-one buddies that ensure every detail is managed and every unique need is met so parents can enjoy a worry-free break. Meals, accommodations, activities, and full-time care are all included, making this all-inclusive weekend a stress-relieving time for everyone.
