A Word from the Camp Program Director
OUR SPECIAL NEEDS FRIENDS ARE AMAZING PEOPLE
The struggle that many of them face on a daily basis is something that most of us do not understand fully. Giving these wonderful friends of ours a great experience is one of the main purposes of champions camp. Champions camp is a camp experience designed specifically for people with special needs.
Our hope is that you will share in our excitement of what this camp can mean to people in Louisiana. Please look closely at this information and then share it with anyone that you feel would be blessed by this experience. Also, please share with anyone you know that would love to be a part of this camp experience as a buddy.
If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact us in the children’s ministry office at the Louisiana Baptist Building. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and the direct line to the children’s office is 318-449-4226.
