Painted Hands

Champion Summer Camp is pleased to offer Inspiring Champions, a fully-integrated camp participation opportunity for non-typically developing boys and girls. The goal for campers in this program is simple - TO HAVE A GREAT TIME AT CAMP!

How It Works

Champion Summer Camp is all about providing happy and healthy summer fun through a blend of sports, games, arts & crafts, field trips, and special camp contests. Kids at Champion are divided into groups (approximately 15 kids) of the same age and same gender. Each group at camp is led by a team which consists of an Executive Counselor, a Counselor, and often a Counselor In Training (present in groups with kids ages 8 and below). The Counselor Team and kids in each group stay the same over the course of a session. Each group has space for 1 Inspiring Champions camper to be fully-included in all group activities.

Is Inspiring Champions The Right Choice For Your Child?
Every day at Champion will be physically-active and socially-engaging for the participants involved. Given the energetic environment and the wide variety of activities that Champion offers, characteristics for Inspiring Champion candidates include:


“The Champion Summer Camp team has demonstrated unwavering commitment to expand the range of opportunities available for camp participants. I applaud them for their 'above and beyond' efforts to provide kids with camp experiences that are otherwise unavailable.”

- Tony Giacomazzi, Hillsborough Recreation Director

  • To provide an inclusive and equal access summer camp opportunity.
  • To help non-typically developing boys and girls reach their full potential by making these kids happier, more resilient, and more successful.
  • To deliver a camp experience filled with fun, where great memories are made.

Inspiring Champions offers the same pricing and participation options as the rest of camp. However, the program does have limited space.
