Our Mission

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