Welcome to the 2013 Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp Sessions
Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp is a place where campers get to
swim like an Olympian, dance like a dervish, canoe like an
explorer, be a stage star, and are the center of attention.
Located in south Mississippi for over 50 years,
rolling pine tree filled hills have echoed with laughter and
squeals for two weeks each summer. Volunteers ensure
children and adults with disabilities experience all camp
can offer and the smiles and sparkle in the eyes of happy
campers keep most coming back year after year. Those who
have lost time for camp due to the clutter of life, often
recall camp when walking on a dark dirt road or when the
sounds of crickets and frogs fill a hot summer night.
What's camp about? It's about putting someone's needs first.
It's about seeing the person, not the differences. The
camper receives love and friendship....counselors and staff
members receive more than they could ever give.Through the
Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp friendships are made character is
built,and lives are positively changed.
