Offering siblings a lifelong community where they can support each other and grow together. Providing opportunities to share their story, hear from other sibs, and have FUN! Always leaving understanding that God made them, loves them, and has a plan for their life.

Sib; /sib/ A  brother or sister of a person(s) with a disability. 

Growing up is challenging for everyone but is uniquely so for siblings of children with disabilities who can feel like they are often competing for their parents’ attention as the children with disabilities can require more attention. Oftentimes, the siblings of children with disabilities feel frustrated and alone while also needing support with other siblings who understand them. This is why providing opportunities for sibs to connect in a space that is safe and fun, with support from leaders that are sibs themselves, is so important.

Camp Daniel Policies & Information

Acceptance Policy

The acceptance process begins with a completed application (see Applications in Camp Policies). Acceptance is firstly based upon our ability to find a suitable counselor for applicant, and secondly, on the timeliness and thoroughness of the application.  An email confirming acceptance will be sent 30 days prior to the weekend getaway session which the applicant is accepted. If you have not received an acceptance or denial email 30 days prior to the first weekend getaway session, then the applicant is automatically put on a waiting list. If the applicant cannot be accommodated into a weekend getaway this season, a full refund will be issued (see Refunds in Camp Policies).

All applicants must be able to function in a group setting. For the safety of everyone at the camp, we do not accept applicants with extreme behavior problems. This includes applicants that are physically, verbally or sexually aggressive. If an applicant does not follow rules or take direction from staff, or any behaviors, which endanger others or are disruptive to the group, are grounds for non-acceptance to camp or immediate dismissal from camp. Applicants must be able to sleep in a cabin setting, not wander at night or disturb others through their behavior.
