We believe that God uniquely created everyone with a purpose and to live a life of ability. We ignore the limitations that can be put on people with special needs and offer experiences that push the limits of what the outside world says is impossible for these incredible people. We invite people with special needs and chronic illnesses to embrace life as Jesus made them and to reach their fullest potential. We invite those who wish to serve them to come experience a life changed by the beauty of helping someone realize the value of their uniqueness. Camp Barnabas is more than a week of camp, it becomes a life-changing experience.
At Camp Barnabas, perspectives are changed and disability is redefined. Our campers are empowered by the love, acceptance and encouragement they receive during their week at camp. Through adaptive activities, our campers are told yes. They can be normal for a week. Our missionaries help to give our campers experiences that will impact them forever. They leave with a new friend and a changed life. Camp Barnabas goes beyond just a week of camp, it becomes life-changing.
