Main Document

"There are eight different camp sessions, geared toward differing ages and abilities and ranging from six to 13 days. "

Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s Camp Little Giant, the place where children and adults of varying abilities and disabilities enjoy a real summer camp experience, is now accepting registrations for the 2016 season.

The therapeutic recreation camp, which opened in 1952 as one of the nation’s first such programs, gives campers the chance to enjoy swimming, music, boat rides, talent shows, arts and crafts, horseback riding, dances, campfires, nature hikes and activities and much more. Trained staff members adapt each activity to the needs and abilities of the campers.

The co-educational camp is held at the 3,100-acre Touch of Nature Environmental Center, located along the shores of Little Grass Lake about eight miles south of Carbondale on Giant City Road.

There are eight different camp sessions, geared toward differing ages and abilities and ranging from six to 13 days.

The 2016 Camp Little Giant Schedule, along with the special population for which each session is designed, includes:

For those who need less intensive and individualized care and supervision, the cost is $550 for a six-day session or $1,200 for a 13-day session.

The cost for each six-day camp session is $1,000 and a 13-day session is $1,200 if a camper requires one-on-one care and supervision.

The price for the seven-day Dyna Camp is $650 for those needing less assistance or $1,200 for campers needing one-to-one care and supervision.

Some campers may qualify for scholarship assistance. Scholarships and reservations are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Camp registration forms and additional information are online at www.ton.siu.edu or you can call 618/453-1121, ext. 231. You may email vickil@siu.edu with further inquiries or for information about day camp options.
