Why Attend Life Compass Camp?

  • Social Ability – Your camper can feel safe and comfortable and learn how to be interested in others. Making and maintaining relationships comes naturally for some, and for others, needs nurturing. Campers will explore their own abilities and discover how they fit together with others personalities.
  • Cognitive Ability – Your camper has an amazing way of thinking! Campers are encouraged to share their ideas and perspectives in an emotionally safe environment.
  • Outdoor Experience / Physical Activity – Being outdoors in nature has been shown to reduce blood pressure and stress and physical activity is good for the mind, body, and soul. What a memorable experience to have both than an entire week at camp!
  • FUN – Campers are constantly engaged in activities that build skills disguised as FUN, plus fun activities that are simply for the pure enjoyment of having fun!
  • A Break for Caregivers – Caregivers can take a break knowing their camper is getting a great experience that considers all his/her amazing abilities and personality!
