Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs assists ABLE in collaborating with many community entities to provide a variety of exciting activities for the campers. Some of the activities address health, recreation, education, and arts & crafts. Beaufort County schools provide the camp location.
Community volunteers and other service organizations provide time and educational materials to enrich the camper's experience.
Many of the campers are diagnosed with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and other intellectual disabilities. They require extensive supervision and support. There is no another camp in the state of South Carolina that would accept these children and young adults.
Traditionally, Camp Treasure Chest operates four-six week camps during June and July, depending on funding. One camp is ages 6 ~ 12, and the other is 13 ~ 21.
Each camper must meet the criteria established by South Carolina Disabilities and Special Needs.
