ABOUT CAMP

Camp ReCreation, Weekend Getaway and ACE are residential camps for adults and children with disabilities to experience spiritual, emotional, mental and physical growth. For more than 38 years, our camps have provided hundreds of campers and thousands of volunteers the opportunity to create friendships and memories to last a lifetime through specially designed programs for those with special needs.

Our mission is to provide a safe, fun and spiritual environment where campers can shine, respite for their loving caregivers and encouragement of acceptance and volunteerism among Southern California’s youth. Camp and its’ affiliate programs are provided through Catholic Charities of Orange County at little to no cost to participants through the generous funding from the Knights of Columbus, Catholic Charities of Orange County and community donors.
