We Make Happy Campers

Welcome to Camp Promise, a free, week-long camp and year-round program for kids, teens, and adults with neuromuscular disorders. Each year, campers and volunteers from all over the country join us at our many locations. Will you be the next member of the Camp Promise family?

2023 Dates & Locations

Our Mission

The mission of Camp Promise is to provide a barrier-free, week-long, overnight camp for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy or select neuromuscular diseases —regardless of age, capability, or ability to pay.

Our camper-focused programming builds independence, confidence, and life skills through traditional camp activities and by bringing campers new experiences through adaptation, technology, creativity, and special guests.

We are a welcoming community where campers learn from and support each other, fostering new and lasting friendships that extend beyond camp. We are committed to providing Camp Promise in a professional, safe, and respectful environment with a leadership team, trained volunteers, and licensed medical staff who support the needs of each and every camper.

A Day in the Life

Get a feel for camp by spending a day in the life of some of our campers. No two days at camp are ever the same, but you can catch a glimpse of our staple camp traditions as well as the ever-improving programs and activities we bring to our locations each summer.

Campers

We welcome campers age 6 and up (no joke, there’s no upper age limit) to join us for a week unlike any other. Paired with your own counselor, you’ll be ready to take on the world.

Parents

Camp is for the camper. But, it’s a pretty good week for our campers’ families, too. We’ll make sure your camper is safe and happy so you can relax and have peace-of-mind.

Volunteers

From counselors, to medical staff to activities staff, we’re 100% staffed by volunteers at Camp Promise. Whatever your skills are, we will put them to use (and then some!).
