RACINE (WITI) -- Shepherds Ministries, a leading provider of services to adults with intellectual disabilities, is prepared to launch three, one-week summer camps for students, ages 13 to 21, on their campus in Union Grove, Wisconsin.
“For many years, Shepherds Ministries has offered quality programs to help and encourage families with adult children who have intellectual disabilities,” said Andrea Humphrey, Coordinator of Camp Discovery. “We see a pronounced need among families for a respite program for younger children in the same situation.”
By creating a safe, fun, and supportive environment, the staff of Camp Discovery will come alongside the campers and help them start to explore questions like “Who am I?” and “What can I do with my abilities?”
Through a variety of skill-building classes and fun activities like field trips, boating, crafts, Bible studies, sports and computers, Camp Discovery can help students discover the possibilities that lie ahead.
