JT's Camp Grom
Everyone needs an adventure.
And camp is definitely an adventure-one that can help forge lifelong friendships, build self-confidence, and change lives for the better. But for adults and children living with disabilities or special needs, camp is an opportunity that's often frustratingly out of reach. Click here to learn more.
That's why we're building JT's Camp Grom.
The only camp of its kind on the East Coast, this amazing 70-acre, beach-style adventure camp is designed to welcome everyone. Wounded veterans, families of the fallen, and adults and children with disabilities or special needs will finally have a place to call their own.
It's a place to have fun.
JT's Camp Grom offers adventure rope courses, lakeside trails, and physical fitness activities ranging from swimming and wakeboarding, to archery and putt-putt. But it's also a place to grow. By taking part in personal development activities, educational programs, entertainment and social gatherings, campers will go home with a new sense of self-discovery, independence and confidence-empowering them and improving their quality of life.
