Camp Arc Spencer:
The purpose of Camp Arc Spencer is to provide a positive recreational and social experience in the outdoors where group living responsibilities can be practiced and shared by campers and staff. Camp Arc Spencer further provides campers an experience in independent living in a secured setting apart from family or other primary care providers. Campers have an opportunity to learn a wide range of adaptive skills while fostering an appreciation of the outdoors.

    Important benefits for campers include:
  • enjoyment of a recreational program;
  • practice in adapting to new places, people, and activities;
  • an opportunity to make new friends among other campers and staff;
  • leadership training to help learn new skills and practice existing skills (including recreational, social, and daily living skills);
  • an opportunity to be a contributing member of a community through personal growth and development.

Camp Arc Spencer provides an environment through which campers can gain insight into their abilities. We believe that the unique attributes of the rural camp setting promote motivational, emotional, and social benefits. It's our objective to help campers develop acceptable group living skills, maintain or enhance personal health, and develop self-worth and self-esteem by assuming a meaningful role in the total camp community.
