Camp Sharing Meadows

The SHARE Foundation / Camp Sharing Meadows

Christian Camps for Other-abled Adults

Summer Camps & Weekend Retreats

For over 40 years, the Share Foundation has been organizing summer camps and values retreats for other-abled adults. Summer camp has grown enormously from the first camp that was held at Father Blaney’s home. Gradually, more weeks were added and Camp Sharing Meadows was held at various locations including Butternut Springs and Apple Acres. In 1995, the St. Timothy Center was constructed at Sharing Meadows to be used as a permanent camp facility.
More people than ever before are interested in attending summer camp and there is a great need for socialization not just in the summer, but throughout the entire year. We currently hold weekend mini-camps once a month in the St. Timothy Center along with 6 weeks of camp during the summer. The Share Foundation hosts mini-camps and summer camps consistently with the support of talented and qualified staff, supportive service-minded donors, and our wonderfully enthusiastic campers.

Everyone Should Have the Opportunity to Attend Camp

Here at Camp Sharing Meadows, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp, whether that’s a short weekend camp or a long week of camp! Unfortunately, for some of our other-abled friends, they may have never had this experience. That’s why we work so hard to get everyone to camp through subsidizing our costs and ensuring parents, staff, and local agencies that their loved ones are cared for when they drop their camper off for a camp full of adventures and memories!
Camp Sharing Meadows includes traditional camp activities such as barbeques, arts and crafts, dances, and campfires that provide other-abled adults with much need socialization. Other-abled campers are culturally diverse groups of men and women who further enrich the camp experience. Most significant, however, are the values discussion groups that allow the campers to tap into their most private emotions concerning issues like “forgiveness” or “trust” or “self-esteem.” A central part of every camp, these sessions validate and honor the individual-affirmations important for all of us, but especially for the other-abled.

We're so excited to have your camper at Camp Sharing Meadows! Register now!
