Angel Camp

The J.E.R. Chilton YMCA at Rockwall offers Angel Camp to the community as a way for unique children to have a camp experience that they otherwise may not be able to have. With an emphasis on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, Angel Camp creates an environment that allows children to explore and create with the support that their needs require. Angel Camp is designed to accommodate children with special needs, ages 5–18.

This summer program allows kids with differing physical and intellectual handicaps the opportunity to experience typical day camp activities like archery, riflery (BBs), crafts, swimming, canoeing, group games, field trips and more. Participants should be able to change or dress themselves with minimal assistance, and be able to use the restroom on their own.

  • Angel Camp runs for 6 one-week sessions, 8AM to 3PM, Monday through Friday.
  • We take a maximum of 20 campers for each session.
  • Campers can select two-weeks that they would like to be enrolled in, however enrollment depends on availability and approval through a Director/parent/camper meeting. Campers will provide their own lunches every day; we will provide one afternoon snack after swimming.
  • Campers remain under the close supervision of highly trained staff with a 1:5 counselor to camper ratio. Modifications to activities will be made as needed.
