A Camp Cole Milestone

On June 18, 2020, we celebrated our long-awaited Groundbreaking with 100+ friends, donors, and supporters. Our journey to this magnificent occasion was a long one, but dirt is officially moving, and our dream of building Camp Cole is finally coming true.

Follow along with us as we build A Place to Shine!

Come Shine with Us!

At Camp Cole, everybody shines, which is why we intentionally collaborate with organized camps, also known as our Camp Partners, to deliver year-round world-class experiences with world-class care. 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.  

Our commitment to transforming the lives of every camper we meet can be evidenced in the quality of our developmental programming, our state-of-the-art Medical Care Facility, our expert teams of caregivers and thought leaders, and our warm and inviting culture that inspires an attitude of  “shining for life” or what we sometimes call “life-shine.”

We invite you to our special gathering place where groups can connect, share, encourage, and shine.

Camp Cole is located at 1571 Crossing Creek in Eastover, just 15 miles from Prisma Health Children’s Hospital.
