Camp For Exceptional Children
Every child deserves to have a place where they belong, where they can just be a kid, and where their biggest worry is what pool slide they will go down and what horse they will ride. Camp Exceptional is a full camp experience designed for children with moderate learning and developmental disabilities. Our camper’s exceptionalities include but are not limited to Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, ADHD, and Social Communication Disorder. Our campers are fully ambulatory and have a basic grasp on their daily living skills.
Every Child Needs This
Camp Exceptional provides belonging to children and youth who often find themselves feeling on the outside. This happens through; accessible programming, loving college staff, and fellow campers “just like them”.
At camp your child will have a safe and fully accessible environment to try new things, grow independence, and develop social skills. Most importantly they will experience Jesus as the greatest love story ever told.

60 Years of Experience
Heartland has been providing Christian summer camps for 60 years. The last 35 years we have provided a camp for adults with developmental disabilities.
This will be the first year of Camp Exceptional. We are excited to use our years of knowledge to provide a safe and joy-filled camp experience.
Camp is best experienced in small groups with close friendships. At Camp Exceptional we always maintain a 1 to 3 staff to camper ratio.
