Christopher Discovery Overnight Camp — Available for as little as one week or up to the entire summer. Campers stay in ramped, dormitory style cabins segregated by gender.

SumFun Day Camp — A multi-week summer day program based on school calendar for children with special needs, ages 5 though 21 who qualify for services through their local county board of developmental disabilities. The program strives to provide the camper with as typical an experience as possible. For some campers, this may mean that the child is included in the traditional day camp program. For others who need a greater level of supervision or medical care, they may be in a more sheltered setting at the Happiness Pavilion.
