Extra Special People has partnered with the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech to build the first-of-its-kind, fully-accessible overnight camp for children and young adults with disabilities: Camp Hooray. For these two schools, the 70-acre Camp Hooray in Jackson County, Georgia will become a living laboratory where their students and faculty will have the opportunity to create new and innovative structural and landscape designs. This will be a cross collaboration between Georgia’s College of Landscape and Design and Georgia Tech’s School of Architecture that is the first of it’s kind between the two universities. Each university will have a class solely dedicated to the design of Camp Hooray. For Extra Special People, Camp Hooray is an opportunity to expand its mission beyond the state and to those with special needs all over the world. For 30 years, Extra Special People, which is based in Watkinsville, Georgia, has focused its mission on enhancing the lives of children with developmental disabilities and their families by emphasizing their abilities, not disabilities. Camp Hooray is an extension of that philosophy.
