The day for our campers begins at 7:15 as they wake and, alongside their counselors, prepare for the day. As they finish their "rise and shine" routine, they are welcome to join program staff in the main building for a morning video and to receive their morning medications from the nurse. Campers will spend the morning outside raising the flag, doing stretches and exercises, and working with staff to memorize the Bible verse of the day, before they gather in the dining room for Breakfast.
After breakfast, campers will attend a full morning of activities including games, crafts, music, and Bible time. Games include activities like adaptive archery, bocce ball on our Special-Olympic-sized, wheelchair-accessible courts, pedal carts, and more. Lunch is served at 12:30 and, as with every meal at Shepherds Camp, food is prepared exactly as each camper's diet requires. We provide full, cut, chopped, puree, thickened, as well as any additional modifications required.
