About This Organizer

Wellness G.I.F.T.S., a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, operates a Camping Retreat Program that “Gives Inspiration For The Soul” to families who have members with special needs.  The camping retreats focus on families who have individuals with developmental disabilities, of any age, living at home with their parents or caregivers. Retreats provide educational, therapeutic and recreational activities for the entire family. 

Respite care is provided to caregivers, giving them an opportunity to  “get a break” from the daily challenges of caring for a family member with special needs while finding support with other caregivers.

While there are many services for children with special needs, many families wait lengthy periods of time to connect with those services. Additionally, many services are paring down on what they can offer families for support. Retreats with Wellness G.I.F.T.S. provide parents the opportunity to find support and education related to accessing services in their communities, and to help build a strong network of peer support.
