Welcome to Special Friends Ministrieses

Our MIssion

Special Friends Ministries is dedicated spreading the love of Jesus through service to individuals with disabilities in a unique outdoor setting. We strive to provide a unique outdoor experience for all campers, staff, and family members/care takers that will strengthen our community and grow our individual and collective faith. 

Some people tend to think of our participants by what they cannot do, but we like to think of our Special Friends by what they can do! Each participant is a gift from God. It is our joy and privilege to offer these experiences to these wonderful individuals.

Camper Testimonial

"It was my first year, but I really had fun . And like you said, I have experience with outdoors stuff, so you put me on the extreme team. I loved that and I love the great outdoors."

Parent Testimonial

"You and your entire group are more than twice blessed for all the work you do, as I saw this week at camp. Kyle was so happy to have been a part of camp this year, and for the first time in quite a while I felt so happy for him..... I'm sure Kyle will want to camp again next year.

Again, thank you and the entire staff for making such a thing possible."
