SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: All of our programs are for Special Needs Campers.

Our longest running program is a residential summer camp where kids, teens, and adults with disabilities are able to engage in a variety of activities. During a week-long stay, campers go fishing, ride horses, camp out, sing songs, work on arts and crafts projects, challenge themselves on the ropes course, make new friends, and renew old friendships.

Other campers may opt to enjoy a week on the road as a participant in the Travel Trip Adventures program. Groups of campers and staff participate in week-long camp trips to places such as Moab or Jackson Hole. River running, hiking, viewing wildlife, and visiting attractions are all a part of these trips.

We also offer a Day Camp that offers the same activities as the Residential, with the only difference being that parents/care-givers drop off their camper in the morning and pick them up at the end of the day.

Dance, Theater, Music/Band, Fine Arts/Crafts, Basketball, Weightloss, Gymnastics, Horses/Equestrian, Swimming, Waterfront/Aquatics, Team Sports, Adventure, Travel, Wilderness/Nature, and more. Fishing, Camp Out, Canoeing, Arts/crafts, & Ropes Course

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Dan Kostopulos and his wife Helen had big hearts and they loved helping people and giving to those less fortunate. They found their niche through helping individuals with disabilities. As early as 1954, they formed a charitable organization to address this special populations needs. By 1967, they established Camp Kostopulos -- which would go on to provide smiles to thousands of children and adults with disabilities.

Our Mission: The Kostopulos Dream Foundation/Camp Kostopulos is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with disabilities through recreation, education and growth experiences.
