Campers of all abilities deserve to sleep on the top bunk, and that is the mentality we use when designing this camp.
Camp Hooray will be the first fully accessible camp in Georgia, providing opportunities for kids of all abilities to enjoy the summer camp experience.
Since we are working with such an incredible piece of property, we wanted to make sure our designs used every aspect of that land to it’s fullest potential.
“It was a dream we didn’t even know we had” and now it is become an incredible reality right before our eyes.
Every summer, ESP gives its campers a one of a kind experience: real overnight camp. For two of ESP’s eight weeks of summer camp, ESP uses the facilities at Camp Twin Lakes for rock climbing, archery, boating, and s’mores. It costs ESP over $700 per camper to send them to overnight camp. Though ESP has the demand for many more weeks, the cost is prohibitive. For each week of overnight camp, there are 40 children who are unable to have this once in a lifetime opportunity. A fully-accessible camp at Camp Hooray will allow these participants to attend and keep costs low. Camp Hooray will help us to serve more of the 2,000 children in the area with developmental disabilities through weeks of day, overnight, and weekend camps in the future. Every child, regardless of obstacle, deserves the opportunity to experience the magic of camp!
