Camp Little Giant is more than just an outdoor experience; it is an adventure in learning and growth with an opportunity to establish lasting friendships. Our focus is for the camper to be as independent as possible while still following routines and providing necessary assistance. Camp Little Giant has served campers with disabilities since 1952. With a strong focus on creating awareness, we provide programs to friends and family of youth and adults with disabilities.

Four to eight campers and a minimum of two counselors share a rustic cabin located near a washhouse and dispensary. Activity staff, nurses, volunteers and other support staff assist with the 24-hour supervision provided for each camper. 

Nurses staff the camp dispensary 24 hours a day. They administer medications, handle routine first aid and respond to illness and medical emergencies.  The Carbondale Center for Medical Arts and Memorial Hospital of Carbondale provide additional prompt medical service if necessary.
