You are invited to attend one (or more!) of our monthly Sharing Meadows Mini-Camps this Fall as one of our Campers. Due to COVID-19, our fall “camp-in-a-box” sessions will run from Saturday morning at 9:00 AM CST until Saturday at Noon CST on Zoom.
Please do not delay in sending in your application because Camp slots are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Why? Even though we can have as many campers as possible on Zoom, we are mailing EVERY camper a “camp-in-a-box” to use during our virtual mini-camp. We need ample enough time to assemble and mail the Mini-Camp boxes in time. The Fall Mini-Camp fee is $60.00 per mini-camp. You should be aware that Share Foundation subsidizes each Camper because the $60 fee does not cover the entire cost of Camp. You will ALWAYS receive a confirmation letter if you have been accepted to Camp. Send in the fee now with the appropriate forms, and we will be in contact with you shortly.
Keep in mind that last-minute cancellations will not receive a refund for the Camp registration fee due to costs associated with planning boxes, crafts, mailing etc.
We hope to see you at Camp throughout the year!
Each person that attends camp will be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. All people become equals at Camp—that means staff as well as campers. Our joy at simply being together (even virtually) makes for a wonderful, welcoming community! Come join us for Sharing Meadows Fall Camp season. We look forward to receiving your forms and payment for the camps!
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. This is especially true during the pandemic! While we normally hold weekend mini-camps once a month in the St. Timothy Center along with 6 weeks of camp during the summer, we started running a virtual camp program in March of 2020 and have continued to this day. Currently, we meet for free bible study one time a week on Zoom. We also have monthly virtual mini-camps available for a small fee this spring! NEW THIS FALL 2021: We will be hosting a virtual mini camp! Find more details below. 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.

October 16th from 9:00 AM – Noon PM CST on Zoom
DUE by October 4th
November 20th from 9:00 AM – Noon PM CST on Zoom

Here at Camp Sharing Meadows, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to attend camp, whether that’s a short weekend camp, a long week of camp, or any of our virtual camp activities! 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 register their camper for a camp full of adventures and memories!
Camp Sharing Meadows includes traditional camp activities online and in-person! Some of these activities include arts and crafts, bingo, 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 virtual or in-person 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!
