This Camp Is 'AweSum'!

​Camp AweSum is not a “church camp” in the way that most people picture. It is a nonprofit group that organizes camping experiences for kids on the Autism Spectrum and their families, and it is held at one of our UCC camps, Moon Beach Camp in St. Germain, Wisconsin. At Camp AweSum, kids and teens develop new friendships through tried and true camping experiences like arts and crafts, nature walks, and music. 

The staff of Camp AweSum consists of autism specialists, other professionals, students in autism education, and volunteers who attend a two-hour training session in preparation for the experience. Our Director for Children’s Ministries, Kristin Underwood, has been involved with Camp AweSum for many years, taking groups of teen volunteers every summer. She is currently recruiting volunteers (eighth grade and older) for this excellent outreach opportunity. 

The youth volunteers often sum up their experience in three words: life-changing experience.
