Beaufort County Disabilities and Special Needs is accepting applications for Camp Treasure Chest, a six-week summer day camp for children and young adults with special needs. Camp Treasure Chest is a special project of ABLE—The Disabilities Foundation of Beaufort County, whose mission is to foster and support the activities and purposes of organizations serving people with developmental disabilities.

Camp Treasure Chest gives participants an opportunity to enjoy music therapy, storytelling, games, sports, arts and crafts, field trips, bowling, and other activities. Lunch and healthy snacks will be provided. The camp will take place in two sessions based on age group. Each session will be held at both Battery Creek High School and Bluffton High School, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.: Session I, ages 6-12, June 15 – July 2, 2015; Session II, ages 13-21, July 6 – July 24, 2015.

Applications will be received on a first-come, first-serve basis due to space limitations. Participants must meet eligibility requirements determined by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.
