Day Camp Program

Empower Me Day Camp is for children with mild to moderate disabilities. 
We offer a variety of activities such as sports, music and drama, arts and crafts, 
woodworking, nature, and outdoor activities. 

Camp hours are M-F, 9 am to 4 pm. The sessions are weekly, and one or
all of the weeks may be attended by the camper. There are 28 total camper slots available
each week. The camp is staffed with physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-
language pathologists, teachers, and college students pursuing one of these careers. 

Until our new facilities are built, Camp will be held this year at 
Baird Park, Greer Recreational Center, 416 Baird Park Circle, Lebanon, TN,

The Day Camp Program is what we know now as our "Summer Day Camp," a camp for children ages 5-21 with mild to moderate physical, developmental or mental disabilities.

We offer a complete program of adaptive activities including sports, music and drama, arts and crafts, water games, nature and outdoor adventure, and much more. 

The Day Camp is staffed with teachers, occupational and physical therapists, speech language pathologists, and college students pursuing a career in healthcare or education. These men and women are highly specialized in pediatrics and offer a safe, controlled play environment with a high staff to camper ratio. 

Our goal is to maximize each child’s abilities through specially designed activities. Staff members are dedicated to make each summer an enjoyable experience full of new accomplishments. 

The Day Camp is offered three weeks in June and three weeks in July.

We have served thousands of special needs individuals over the past 19 years. 

The Respite Program is also part of the Day Camp Program. 
Respite opportunities consist of bimonthly events for our families to be able to depend on for childcare. These fun one-day events include pizza and movie nights, Spring Fling, Christmas Camp, Saturday Camp, and other fun active days.
Friday's Fun Fest with Friends is a monthly respite program for Empower Me participants. It's a fun Friday night of movies, a dance party, circle time and games. We also enjoy a pizza, chips and punch dinner!
