Developmentally Disabled youth & adults
Session 1 (June 11-14)
Session 4 (July 1-4)
This is one of the few Christian camping programs in Michigan that ministers specifically to the developmentally disabled. Campers attending Freddy's Friends at Pine Ridge may be challenged with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism, and other medical diagnoses. Physical ages run from youth on up through adults. The campers will participate in fun activities that are geared for their abilities, making it possible for everyone to be encouraged as they get in on the action.
Where does the name from this camp come from? We're glad you asked! Freddy is a loved puppet here at Pine Ridge. Over the years, Freddy has always struggled with memorizing the Bible verse of the week. Our challenged campers have found it enjoyable to interact with Freddy and encourage him often to say his verse. Freddy is also mischievous and fun, and his antics keep the campers in stiches of laughter.
Physically challenged campers are "mainstreamed" into other camp sessions according to their age. Please call Pine Ridge to make the appropriate arrangements.
