Shepherds Ministries Launches Summer Camp Discovery

SC BumperShepherds Ministries (in Union Grove, Wisconsin) will offer three one-week residential summer camp sessions for individuals with intellectual disabilities this year.  “Camp Discovery”  will target students aged 13-21 as they discover “purpose and possibility” in their lives.  The camps will feature field trips, sports, devotions, life skills and counseling.  Empowerment, goal setting and collaboration are themes in the camp.  The fee for each week is $700.

“We encourage students to discover their abilities over their disabilities in everything we do at Shepherds Ministries” said Brian Canright, Transition Coordinator at the College.  “We try to create a space where the student’s abilities can  surface and build possibility.”

Some (but not all) campers  are attending the camp to try out life at Shepherd’s College.  The College offers 3-year programs  in horticulture or culinary arts during the school year.  Shepherds Ministries offers a variety of residential and day services as well as sponsoring Shepherds College.
