Camp Barnabas exists to offer life-changing experiences to campers with special needs and to the people who serve them.

Did You Know:

Approximately 20% of the U.S. population has a disability.

There are many barriers to participate in summer camp for individuals with special needs.

Our overnight camp allows caregivers/guardians a week of respite while their child enjoys an amazing week full of fun and accessible experiences.  

Over the past 25 years, Camp Barnabas has welcomed more than 84,000 campers and missionaries (buddies) to camp. Our goal at Camp Barnabas is to show others the love of Christ in every aspect of our ministry.

YOU can make a difference by joining in! All proceeds go towards our Barnabas Scholarship Fund which helps send individuals with special needs and chronic illnesses to a life-changing week at camp.
