We provide respite services to families of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. A range of program opportunities are offered year-round to our families in single-day, three-day, five-day and ten-day sessions that provide respite from the demands of daily care and supervision.
Our programs foster independence, nurture responsibility, develop competence and build lifelong friendships in a warm, supportive atmosphere of planned permissiveness. They encourage community, recreation, education, fun and adventure in the setting of a traditional camp environment or out in our community.
Camp Krem’s full facility was lost in the CZU Wildfire. Over the past 63 years the volunteers, staff and families of Camp Krem constructed more than 27 buildings and structures, which are now gone and in desperate need of rebuilding.
In 2019 we offered our services to more than 600 families and served 1,250 campers. They continue to need our help. The goal is to rebuild quickly and return to serving our community. We will be grateful for your support.
I can’t tell you what it meant for me to be able to bring my daughter Sam to Camp Krem. She had so much fun! Everyone was fantastic and helpful when we arrived, and Sam was positively giddy when I picked her up. This was a real milestone for us, and it has given me huge relief.
