The Hancock County Community Foundation recently awarded Handicapable Camp a $5,000 grant from HCCF’s Enrichment Fund. Handicapable Camp is a weekend camp for people with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. The camp provides an outdoor experience for campers as well as respite care for their caregivers.
The grant dollars awarded to Handicapable Camp will help fund programming expenses for the weekend camp that can accommodate 105 campers ranging in ages from 13 to 79. Handicapable Camp recently celebrated their 40th year, serving more than 3,000 handicapped campers while still utilizing a volunteer staff.
