"I want to design a hybrid battleship / aircraft carrier / submarine that can carry fighter planes, missiles, torpedoes, and sonobuoys. Hopefully, we won’t be having another war by the time I grow up, but we might, based on the situations in the news. We need to be ready just in case."
Camp Able serves youth with a variety of challenges, ranging from cerebral palsy and Down syndrome to autism. With a 1:1 counselor/camper ratio, each camper will have the opportunity to experience all camp activities, including low ropes course, swimming, canoeing, exploring nature, arts and crafts and worship.
“Camp Able focuses not on what a camper can’t do, but what he or she CAN do,” says Camp Director John Dreyfus. “St. Columba is a great fit for Camp Able, not only because of what our campus offers, but also because of the West Tennessee diocesan network that gives us access to an extensive and generous support system as well as many enthusiastic volunteers that will make it an unforgettable week for these special campers.”
Camp Able is located at the St. Columba Episcopal Conference & Retreat Center, 4577 Billy Maher Rd.
