Angel Camp

We are currently finalizing activities for Summer 2024!

We will begin accepting applications on March 1st. This webpage will be updated with application information soon.

The J.E.R. Chilton YMCA at Rockwall offers Angel Camp as a way for unique children to have a camp experience that they otherwise may not be able to have, and at no cost to parents! With the support of our community, this program is made possible through generous donations to our YMCA Annual Campaign. To learn more about how you can help please visit https://p2p.onecause.com/ymcadallas2024/donate.

Angel Camp creates an environment that allows children to explore and create with the support that their needs require, and is designed to accommodate children with special needs, ages 5–18. This summer program allows youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to experience typical day camp activities like archery, riflery (BBs), arts and crafts, swimming, canoeing, group games, field trips and more. Participants must 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 2:30PM, Monday through Friday.
    • Week 1: June 10-14
    • Week 2: June 17-21
    • Week 3: June 24-28
    • We do not have camp the week of July 1-5.

    • Week 4: July 8-12
    • Week 5: July 15-19
    • Week 6: July 22-26
  • We take a maximum of 20 campers for each session.
  • Campers can select one week 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.
