What is Adam’s Camp?

Adam’s Camp is a non-profit organization founded in Colorado in 1986, providing a variety of intensive, personalized, and integrated therapeutic programs for children with special needs and their families as well as recreational programs providing fun, social connections and growth in independence for youth and young adults with special needs.

Adam’s Camp is successful because we meet the needs of the individual and the family in a camp setting, where healing and hope are contagious. The impact of our programs is clear:

  • 88% of our families note that their children make significant progress toward their individualized therapy goals at the end of the Adam’s Camp week
  • 63% of families that participated in therapy camps in 2013 were returning families
  • 80% of Adventure Campers in 2013 were returning campers with 45% attending for 5 years or more!


Adam’s Camp’s dedication to serving families has been recognized and rewarded.
