Special Touch Ministry is continually expanding to meet the needs represented by the community of people with disabilities.
It's five days, in residence, camp-style retreat for people with intellectual or physical disabilities to find fellowship with others in a Christian atmosphere.
A Christian vacation/retreat experience for individuals with physical and/or intellectual disabilities and their families. The Summer Get Away program features separate recreation and chapel services that are functionally appropriate for people with physical disabilities and for people with intellectual disabilities. Training is provided for all volunteer Summer Get Away staff.
While the facilities at each Get Away vary, special care has been given to select facilities that will best fit the special needs of our guests. Each Get Away has various activities such as: swimming, fishing, crafts, boat rides, sports, games, hayrides, bonfires, and petting zoos & local interests.
