About The Adult Weekend Program
All people need a place to meet friends, interact with others, and spend time away from home, regardless of the challenges of his or her disabilities.
Since 1975, Camp Fatima Adult Weekends has provided this special place for adults, ages 23 and over, offering campers a chance to select from one of the weekend-long sessions each Spring and Fall. There is no charge for campers to attend Camp Fatima.
Campers interact with a group of dedicated volunteers who ensure that each camper’s weekend experience is successful. Each season’s weekends focus on a theme that, although may be ordinary, become extraordinary when given the Camp Fatima touch. Campers are allowed to be themselves in a safe and nurturing environment away from the expectations of their daily lives.
We work together to provide a supportive atmosphere for both campers and volunteers, ensuring that no person’s disability is too great a challenge.
Adult Weekend Staff Descriptions
Each volunteer acts as a Counselor and may be asked to assist in the following positions: Kitchen, Arts & Crafts, Activities. Although Directors for each of these areas are established prior to each weekend, assistance is always encouraged and welcome. No one position is required, and each volunteer is only asked to participate as they feel comfortable. Due to the compressed time of a weekend, staff positions are not as clearly defined as Summer Camps.
Adult Weekend Dates
There are four Adult Weekends during the year, two in the fall, and two in the spring. There is no limit to the number of weekends a volunteer may attend.
