Notes

For teens with special needs, there are limited camping opportunities available. Anne Carlsen Center for Children is rooted in the belief that all people, regardless of disability, should have the chance to live life to its fullest.

Our summer camp, held at Elks Camp Grassick near Dawson, N.D. for one week each summer, supports and enhances the campers´┐Ż use of technology to allow them to participate fully in the camping experience.

Mixed in with functional learning activities are camp favorites including hayrides, swimming in the lake, pontoon rides, bonfires, and recreation activities. The week will end with a special student art show.
