About Camp Little Giant
Camp Little Giant has served campers with disabilities since 1952. It was the first camp for individuals with disabilities in the nation, the first camp accredited by the American Camp Association, and we ultimately paved the way for the Special Olympics.
The Camp Little Giant tradition continues into the fall with Respite Camp. Adults 18 and older with physical, cognitive or developmental disabilities will enjoy a 3 day, 2 night camp experience. This 3-day program is in partnership with the students from the SIU Recreation Therapy program.
