Campers are the heart of Camp Moja. For one week during the summer, Camp Moja provides individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to share in fun and fellowship with their peers. Campers are placed in groups and assigned counselors, who volunteer their time to make sure the campers’ needs are put as number one.
Campers must be at least 18 years old and have an intellectual disability in order to participate. Camp Moja 2023 will cost $350. The cost of camp covers lodging, food, classes and activities specially selected to make it an unforgettable week.
Camp Moja is held at Lake Doniphan and has an outdoor aspect to camp. We suggest that campers be able to transport themselves at least 1/4 mile without physical assistance. If there are any questions regarding your camper’s ability to fully participate, we encourage you to contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registering.
Camp Moja is designed specifically for adults with developmental disabilities including Autism, Down’s Syndrome, and Borderline Intellectual Functioning among others. Benefits of camp include, but are not limited to:
- increasing skills of independence
- enhancing self-esteem
- increasing personal self-understanding and acceptance
- increasing social abilities
- widening awareness of recreation opportunities and skills of recreation
- connecting with others with similar interests, needs, and/or abilities
“The one thing that I absolutely love about Camp Moja is the feeling of unconditional love. A camper does not care who you are or where you are from; they offer their unconditional love to you regardless of your faults. This opportunity is one of a kind. Being a part of these campers’ lives for one week a year is truly life changing.”
