Camp Cole is magical! inclusive! joyful! exciting!

Designed from the heart for children, teens, and adults with illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges, Camp Cole is a camp and retreat center where everyone, regardless of their circumstances, can connect, share, encourage, and shine.

The Magic of Camp

Since opening our doors in 2021, we have served over 1,800 campers with illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges. Among our campers are children who have cancer, Down syndrome, autism, and sickle cell disease, children who have experienced or are currently experiencing homelessness or are from low-income families, children who are deaf or hard of hearing, and individuals experiencing many other life challenges. This video perfectly encapsulates the overwhelming joy and magic that can be witnessed during summer days at Camp Cole. 

Come Shine With Us As a Camp or Retreat!

At Camp Cole, everybody shines, which is why we intentionally collaborate with pre-existing organizations, also known as our Camp Partners, to deliver year-round world-class experiences with intentional programming. Our 40-acre campus is an idyllic home-away-from-home for everyone who visits and a safe place to try new things, grow in independence and confidence, and share friendships with people with similar challenges and capabilities.

In addition to hosting camps for individuals with illnesses, disabilities, and life challenges, we proudly serve our community as a retreat center during the winter, spring, and fall. Our bright and inviting Welcome Center, spacious Cassels Cafe, comfortable Courage Cabins, and numerous meeting spaces make Camp Cole the perfect spot for your upcoming work, church, family, or organization gathering. The best part of booking a Campfire Rental at Camp Cole is knowing that your rental fee is making it possible for our summer campers to partake in a life-changing camp experience.
