Since 1954, Holiday Camp has provided summer programming for Monroe County youth with disabilities. Each summer has brought together young people and unique enrichment activities - swimming, sports, arts and crafts, field trips, music, outdoor recreation, and entertainment.
Holiday Camp is a special summer place where youth with disabilities can relax, explore, develop new skills, flex their muscles, and learn teamwork; all in a fun-filled atmosphere of support on a beautiful 3 1/2-acre outdoor setting along the River Raisin.
Holiday Camp offers 8 weeks of camp each summer which are attended by a total of 150 children and youth. The camp is overseen by a director and staffed by counselors who are assisted by many community volunteers.
Holiday Camp is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) corporation and operates through donations and other in-kind contributions from the community.
The camp property is owned and maintained by the Monroe County Intermediate School District. The summer camp is operated by a Board of Directors which is comprised of local citizens -- business leaders, parents, and community representatives.
Holiday Camp operates on a nominal fee structure, and depends on donated funds and services to provide meals, special equipment, support services, camperships, supplies, and improvements.
