Camp Boggy Creek
We are a year round camp for seriously ill children and offer weeklong summer sessions for the children and family retreat weekends for the whole family. There is no charge to the children or families who come to Boggy Creek. We invite you to explore this site and open your hearts to the magic of serving these brave children. Once you do, we hope you'll join us.
During each of our summer sessions, up to 150 children with like illnesses arrive for a week of fun, adventure and independence. The prescription for the day is fun, fun, fun! Laughter, giggles, friendships and excitement abound on the 232 acres of tall pines, majestic oaks and nature trails.
Campers are empowered to do things they never dreamed they could do. They are infused with a spirit of accomplishment at every turn and allowed to forget that “they have what they have.” For many of them it is the first time they’ve felt “normal” since their diagnosis
Multiple sessions of overnight camp offer our campers the chance to come to camp and catch a fish, make a woodshop project, or climb our high tower while making some wonderful new friends.
Each session of camp we host a different illness group. Please visit our website for details.
