Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Residential and Day Camp

We offer six one week sessions during the summer with both residential and day camp options. We can take up to 60 campers per week. We also offer spring and fall camp weekends where we take less campers to provide a community based experience along with the camp experience our campers love. Our weekends allow us to take our campers out in to the community for various events or functions.

Population(s) Served

During our fall, winter, spring season we meet with campers and their families at various community locations to provide them with a fun activity they might not otherwise be able to attend. We have gone to movies, out to eat, to a SB Cubs game, the zoo and various other local businesses. We have also traveled to other areas, within a few hours of South Bend, with a high concentration of camper families to meet with them at fun community events.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Unfortunately, people with disabilities are still, most often, treated as less in our society. We exist to change that stigma, to help our campers see that they can do anything they set their minds to and to show the general public that they are missing out on amazing friends in their community. We do this by:
Goals of Camp Millhouse
1. Encourage and promote independence and self-esteem.
2. Create an atmosphere where every camper experiences success.
3. Provide an opportunity for a cohesive living environment.
4. Provide a much needed respite for our campers and their parents/care providers.
Objectives of Camp Millhouse
1. Provide outdoor fun and community living in a safe and healthy environment.
2. Expand the campers’ knowledge and appreciation for the living and nonliving elements of nature.
3. Foster the human dignity of each individual at camp by adapting to their unique needs.
4. Offering opportunities for:
a. Recreation
b. Fellowship
c. Self-reliance
d. Adventure
e. Success
f. Tradition
5. Contribute to the growth and well-being of each camper physically, socially, personally, and intellectually.
a. Physically, by providing land and water opportunities to develop fitness and new motor skills
b. Socially, by providing group living opportunities for positive communication and behaviors and by encouraging
social interactions in both small and large group activities.
c. Personally, by expanding daily self-help skills, encouraging independence, and improving attitudes towards
themselves and others.
d. Intellectually, by providing new sensory experiences, knowledge, and problem solving opportunities in the
areas of nature/music, aquatics, arts and crafts, recreation and games.

Good health and well-being: The health and safety of our campers and staff is top priority. Our camp director is a nurse and we employ at least one additional nurse any time we have campers at camp. We plan nutritious, delicious meals that are made from scratch for our campers and staff. Good nutrition helps lead to good health. Spending time in nature with friends proves to be very beneficial for the mental health of anyone who comes to camp. Their physical health is improved through camp activities that are modified for each camper's individual abilities.
