Camp Founder Abbie Rogers

Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp was founded in 1961 by Abbie Rogers when she combined her work with Girl Scouts and her dedication to individuals with disabilities.  Abbie always had the belief that through friendships we learn that we are all more alike than different.

Camp is held in a very rustic setting. Adaptations for individual interests, limitations, and abilities enable individuals with disabilities to participate in typical camping activities. Daily activities are planned for and include arts and crafts, group games, canoeing, music, recreation, fishing, swimming and special activities each night.

The camp is staffed with all volunteers including professional staff and other qualified adult staff. Counselors are high school students who volunteer to work with the children and adults with disabilities in small groups under the direction of the staff. Medical staff is available on the camp grounds for first-aid and dispensing medications.

Since the beginning of the Abbie Rogers Civitan Camp, it has been funded by the Hattiesburg Civitans as well as generous donations by individuals and businesses in Mississippi.
