St. Andrew’s, New Orleans, hosted and volunteered with Camp Able, a camp devoted to give a camp experience to children of diverse abilities.. This is the second year the church has opened the doors to the group.

Philosophy of Camp Able: Camp Able is a vacation, birthday party and family reunion all rolled up together. Camp Able is a gift of mutual respect and compassion wrapped up in silliness and love.

At Camp Able we aspire to be a community that celebrates our diverse abilities and gifts. Camp Able is not about what we can’t do, whether camper or staffer, the focal point is what we “can” do.

Camp Able was specifically created to provide a unique camping experience for persons with diverse abilities.  We seek to love our neighbors as ourselves understanding that our neighbors don’t always look, sound or think the same way we do.

Camp Able is about forming a community that loves us just as we are. Our goal is to establish, at least for one week, a community of unconditional love, compassion and acceptance.
