The work we do at Camp Hardtner matters. Deeply. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better—or more challenging—job in the world or a more rewarding ministry. Working and living intentionally in community will push your limits and you are sure to grow tremendously: spiritually, personally, and professionally while you impact the lives of our campers.
Camp Able is specifically designed for persons with special needs. It is NOT about disabilities, but rather about ABILITIES! Christ has called us to love God and to love our neighbor as He has loved us—without conditions or limits—it is in celebration of that perfect love that we come together at Camp Able.

Volunteers are essential to the success of the Camp Able program. Volunteers serve in a one-to-one ratio of volunteer to camper. Each volunteer provides assistance, physical or otherwise, for their assigned camper and is expected to facilitate the safety and enjoyment of the camper throughout the duration of the program.
During Camp Able, campers take part in several different activities i.e. swimming, arts and crafts, talent night, and much, much more. What is not easily expressed through words can be read on the camper’s faces—filled with amusement and delight. Each camper, faced with their own set of circumstances, work through their challenges to take part in a camp that allows them to have fun; learn new things; and most importantly, just be an ordinary person.
