A Unique Summer Camp
For People with Disabilities

Camp Jabberwocky, founded by Helen Lamb in 1953, is a summer camp for children and adults with disabilities, including cerebral palsy, down syndrome, spina bifida and autism.

This summer, as campers trade their home lives for bug spray and bathing suits, more then 150 volunteers will gather at the Steamship ferry to enthusiastically welcome more than 120 campers throughout the season to another amazing summer at camp.

This year marks more than 65 years of Camp Jabberwocky and, it also represents, more than 65 years of dedicated Service as all of our counselors and directors are volunteers who come back to camp year after year. In addition, it marks more than 65 years of remarkable Friendships, as many of our campers have been sleeping in the same cabin, in the same bunk bed, with the same friends since they were kids. Lastly, it marks more than 65 years of Adventure as we push our campers to challenge themselves in every way during their summer experience.
