The SCAMP Program

SCAMP supports students with a wide range of special needs including autism/spectrum disorders, physical disabilities, cognitive and emotional impairment. There are over 50 young adults that volunteer at the camp in addition to trained staff to provide support and positive social interaction. SCAMPers attend our program from Clarkston and surrounding areas.

Blessings In a Backpack


Blessings in a Backpack is a “neighbor-helping-neighbor” program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families.

Each week, volunteers, in cooperation with school officials, distribute backpacks filled with enough non-perishable food for the weekend (six meals) to “at-risk” students. These students are participants in the government subsidized free or reduced fee hot lunch program.

The goal of the Blessings in a Backpack program is to keep these students from going hungry on the weekends and remove barriers to academic success.
