Description


Camp Courageous of Iowa is a year-round recreation and respite care facility for individuals with disabilities. We are a private, non-profit organization that provides educational, recreational and leisure opportunities for individuals with disabilities in a controlled environment. Camp Courageous was founded in 1972 when 40 acres of land was donated for the purpose of establishing a camp for individuals with disabilities. In 1973 five buildings were built from donated labor and supplies. By 1974 the camp served it's first campers, totaling 211. Today the camp has over 80 acres, 16 buildings, is open year-round and annually serves thousands of campers ranging in age from 1 to 100. All people, regardless of ability level, have the right to opportunities found in the world around them. Individuals with disabilities, as well as their families, should experience year-round recreational and respite care activities in a camp setting. Camp Courageous provides this needed service to all. The camp provides opportunities for social and personal growth within a supportive environment. Campers learn to try a variety of creative and challenging activities and experience successes. Campers develop enhanced self-esteem which carries over to work, home or school environments.
