The mission of Camp ReCreation is to provide a residential summer camp program which offers participants with developmental disabilities opportunities for fun, social interaction, skill development, and spiritual growth while increasing the awareness and acceptance of our participants in the larger community.

Camp ReCreation is a non-denominational residential camping program for children and adults with developmental disabilities in the Northern California region. The not-for-profit organization relies on community and foundation donations and camper fees to fund a series of annually run, week-long camps and holiday events. The multi-dimensional camp experiences are staffed by dedicated and trained community volunteers. Funds are allocated across rented camp facilities, counselor training, camper transportation, special equipment and access, year-round administration, and materials for camp activities.

In addition to providing a personal growth experience for persons with developmental disabilities, Camp ReCreation allows caretakers a respite from their "24 hours a day / 365 days a year" responsibility in order to recuperate and re-energize. Further, Camp ReCreation is chartered to increase the awareness and acceptance of persons with developmental disabilities in the community. Camp ReCreation accomplishes this goal through building the social-integration skills of the campers and training counselors to act as dedicated companions for persons with developmental disabilities both, at camp, and in the broader community.
