Jesus Adventure & Me Retreat
Jesus Adventure and Me: A weekend JAM-packed with adventures and activities adapted especially for youth and adults (age 14-99) with intellectual disabilities. Activities will include crafts, games, Bible lessons and much more! All activities will be adapted to meet each camper’s individual skills and abilities by trained, qualified volunteers. Most importantly, at JAM camp, through Bible Study, song, and prayer, campers will learn and grow in their relationship with Christ. Campers must be able to care for their basic needs (showering, toileting and eating) with minimal assistance and must be able to conduct themselves in a positive manner.
Registration begins on Friday from 4-6 at the cabins and pickup will be on Sunday at 1:00.
