Calvary Church partners with Joni and Friends in their ongoing ministry to families affected by special needs. Here, families are cared for, encouraged, and rejuvenated in a Christ centered, fully accessible camp environment. Each Retreat site provides worship, teaching, fun, developmentally appropriate activities and cultivates meaningful connections with families who understand the challenges of life with a disability.
Trip participants will serve as a companion to a child or adult with a disability. In this role, your job is to be their friend for the week, giving the gift of your time and love. You’ll join your assigned family for meals and a wide variety of program activities such as swimming, boating, hiking, horseback riding, and climbing walls. Following afternoon free time, you will rejoin your family for evening activities.
