With your gift, and others like it, the children who attend Camp Knutson have life-changing experiences.

For many of these children, camp is the only time that they are surrounded by others who face the same challenges they do. It is an opportunity to be just another kid, to splash around in the lake and sing songs around the camp fire.

We serve children with special needs, so costs are higher than most traditional camps.

Your contribution helps provide an exciting and healthy environment, and possibly a life-changing experience, for these very special campers!
