Camp Little Giant registration is open

Camp Little Giant offer participants an eye-opening view of their own capabilities and the belief that they can increase their confidence and independence. CLG is located on the shores of Little Grassy Lake, near the Shawnee National Forest, with access to an outdoor playground full of adventure!  Our philosophy is to allow campers to develop a "can do" attitude. Our focus is for the camper to be an independent as possible while still following routines and providing necessary assistance.

Camp Little Giant offers the opportunity for people with mental, physical, or cognitive disabilities to get in touch with nature in a safe yet exciting manner. Campers leave this camp with grins on their faces and heads full of wonderful memories.
