Camp Treasure Chest

Camp Treasure Chest is the only summer camp in Beaufort County for children with severe development and related disabilities.


It is operated by the ABLE Foundation and it serves 30 - 60 children and young adults in Beaufort County who wouldn't otherwise benefit from any other summer camp experience.

2019 Camp Treasure Chest is now accepting applications!

It’s that time again to plan for Camp Treasure Chest 2019. We are very excited with beginning to

coordinate this year’s 2019 camp. I hope you consider Camp Treasure Chest as your camp of

choice for your son/ daughter.

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. 

About Our Campers


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.

Camp Operation


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. 

Camper Eligibility


Each camper must meet the criteria established by South Carolina Disabilities and Special Needs.
