Special Session of Alabama
The mission of Special Session is to know Christ in all people, through ministry to and with people of all abilities. Our vision is a vibrant, loving community where all God’s children are celebrated.
Special session started in 1998 and will be celebrating 25 years of love this summer!
Why should you be a camper at Special Session?
"Special Session is a community where people can be seen for who they are, without their disabilities being first in full view. It is a place where individuals, disabled or not, can discover who we are on the inside. It is a place of formation for the campers and for the staff (both teenagers and adults alike), it is a place of unconditional love, and not only acceptance but affirmation. While we do offer typical camp programs during our sessions, like swimming, arts/crafts, canoeing, fishing, etc, we are so much more than that. The Special Session community is a family. We love and support each other while we are at camp, and after we leave." - Previous Special Session Camper
