Camp Impact

Camp Impact is a safe and happy place where ordinary experiences teach, prepare, and inspire campers to engage in opportunities that develop hope and confidence.

"This program has helped my child grow significantly. It gives her so much positivity and happiness. I absolutely love to see her have this amazing experience in her childhood."
-Camp Impact Parent

Camp Impact is a Camp Cole-directed weeklong camp experience for children ages 6-14 who are experiencing or have previously experienced homelessness in sheltering programs, foster programs, or no to low-income families. Through a combination of traditional indoor and outdoor camp activities, like swimming, games, and Arts & Crafts, Camp Impact campers, the majority of whom have not previously attended an overnight camp, get to overcome fears, try new things, make friends, and grow in confidence. In addition to daytime activities, Camp Impact campers enjoy nighttime activities, like glow dances, movie nights, campfires, Olympic Games nights, and more. Local churches and businesses generously provide and serve meals and snacks for Camp Impact.

Camp Impact 2024 will be held from June 3rd to June 7th. A link to camper registration will be posted on this page at a later date.
