Summer Camp

About Summer Camp

All children need a place to meet friends, play games and spend time in the sun, regardless of the challenges of his or her disability.

Since 1968, Camp Fatima’s Summer Camp provides this special place for children, offering campers a chance to pick from one of the week-long sleep away sessions in August.  There is no charge for campers to attend Camp Fatima.

Each camper is assigned his or her own counselor who provides 24 hour a day individualized care, with the help of a team of registered nurses, lifeguards, counselor support and administrators, as well as kitchen, arts and crafts, and activities staffs.
We work together to provide a very supportive atmosphere for both the campers and the volunteers.

The 2017 Summer Camp Dates:

Week 1:  August 6-12, 2017

Week 2:  August 13-19, 2017
