For Ages 16 and Up With Special Needs
July 10-15 2016

Our New Horizons Camp provides a welcoming Christian camping environment to youth who are
developmentally disabled and/or who are mildly, physically disabled.  Campers learn they are important
creations of God and explore the beauty of God's world.

Campers must be able to care for their own personal needs (eating, dressing, and restroom use) with
minimal assistance and be able to participate in most camp activities.

The Camp activities include swimming at the local pool, canoeing, carnival, games, archery,
talent show, and campfires.

The Directors, Cabin Leaders and Registered Nurse have been selected for their skill and caring for the
emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of disabled persons.  The majority of our staff have had prior
camp experience.  All summer staff participate in training events prior to the beginning of camp, complete
an application, have references checked, and submit to a Washington State Patrol background check.  
The Site Staff working all summer perform jobs such as kitchen assistants, archery instruction, craft
instruction, and waterfront instruction.  Camp Burton has year-round personnel including office,
maintenance, kitchen, and housekeeping.
  SPECIAL NEEDS ADULTS - If you are seeking a camp experience for a special needs adult during the summer -
Parkview Homes runs an Adult Camp here at Camp Burton during the summer.  Please visit their website for more
