SNP is designed for parents and their child with disabilities to spend time together in an Orthodox Family Environment. The campers are introduced to camp life at All Saints Camp and the parents are given the opportunity to meet fellow Orthodox parents who are tackling the same challenges in today’s world.

The SNP schedule includes: Sensory friendly Daily prayer services, modified learning church school lessons, parent workshops and discussions, parent/child sports, crafts, singing, dancing, bon fires, hayrides, scavenger hunts, and swimming, just to mention a few of the activities.

Open House Program May 26th - 10am -6pm
for youth with disabilities ages 9 -19 and parents/families of all ages!
Executive Staff
All aspects of the program are designed to give youth with disabilities an optimal experience. The majority of our staff are NOT specially trained professionals and we are therefore not able to accommodate individuals with severe behavioral issues. However, our non-professional staff is required to complete specialty training for working with individuals with disabilities.

Because of the camp's rustic environement and natural setting we are only able to accept individuals who can transport themselves without the assistance of wheelchairs, crutches or walkers for the full four-day program (allowances can be made based on consultation.) Please contact us if you are considering the one day program during which movement about the camp is more limited and accessible to those with physical challenges.

Please feel free to contact our Executive Staff with questions or concerns.

Once an application is recieved one of our executive or medical staff will contact you to conduct an intake assessment to ensure we can accomodate the needs of your family to the best of our ability.

After one-year of participation with our SNP, campers and parents may wish to discuss the possibility of also attending one of our other camping programs Diocesan Church School Camp or Teenage Conference. For youth younger than nine years of age, we offer our Mommy & Me/Daddy & Me program which is also capable of accommodating families with children with disabilities.
