Our Mission

The mission of Camp Promise is to provide a barrier-free, 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.

Campers

We welcome campers age 6 and up (no upper age limit) to join us for a camp unlike any other. Paired with a counselor one-on-one, you’ll be ready to take on the world.

Parents

Camp is for the camper, but it’s pretty great 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!
