Camping offers children, youth, and adults a chance to encounter God in the natural world, in the love shared in community, and in stories told around the campfire. Resource links at this site can help your camp and campers’ experiences be accessible and inclusive. The Disability Ministries Committee may be able to provide training to camp staff through United Methodist Camp and Retreat Leaders Gatherings.
