Down Syndrome Camp

The Down Syndrome Camp for youth with Down syndrome will be held June 14-18, 2015 at Camp Knutson on Trout Lake. There are great activities and it's loads of fun! The waterfront is always a hit with swimming, fishing, boating, tubing, paddleboating and just enjoying the beach. Other activities include horseback riding, cookouts and karaoke and dance evenings.

Campers must be between the ages of 10 and 21. For more information check out our Camp Info page.
