CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CAMP
In Oklahoma, 1 in 6 individuals live with a disability. Unfortunately, limited recreational opportunities exist for this group. Central Christian Camp is the only organization in Oklahoma providing children and adults with disabilities year-round opportunities for camping and travel. Impacting over 3,000 individuals annually, CCC strives to ensure that every Oklahoman with a disability has access to quality and affordable recreational opportunities.
For over 30 years, CCC has provided an atmosphere of acceptance, and built a culture of compassion, within a camp setting. Through the help of volunteer counselors, campers experience adapted and individualized activities such as swimming, archery and boating. Most importantly, through these interactions, campers and counselors create life-long memories and friendships.
Yet, our current facilities do not allow campers to experience equality and accessibility. The Pool House, with shower/restroom/changing facilities, has narrow doorways and cramped stalls. Campers utilizing a wheelchair aren’t able to fit, even with assistance of a counselor.
Impact Oklahoma can completely rebuild the Pool House, creating an accessible facility to serve both the pool and waterfront areas for year-round activities. Additionally, we will modernize and enhance the Conference Center restrooms for ease of access. Through your IMPACT, we will surpass our current accommodations and no longer have unnecessary barriers based on ability level!
Campers and volunteers come to camp simply to have fun, but find so much more! CCC is not just an organization, it’s a family. With your help, we can leave limitations behind and continue to Change Lives One Camp at a Time! (www.centralchristiancamp.org)
