Camp Dream Street, MS is a five day, four night camping experience for children with physical disabilities. Our campers traditionally live in Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Georgia and are able to attend the program entirely free of charge. Predominant diagnoses of our campers include cerebral palsy, spina bifida, limb deficiencies, spinal cord injury, communicative disorders and other developmental disabilities. Dream Street is open to campers of all racial, religious, and socio-economic backgrounds. We are able to accept approximately sixty children each summer for the program.
Camp Dream Street, MS was founded in 1975 with the mission that all children, regardless of their abilities, must be offered the chance to have fun, to make new friends, to achieve, to be accepted for who and what they are, and to learn from the challenges of group life. Both the children and the staff at Camp Dream Street benefit from the life-changing experiences the camp has to offer. Dream Street is a place where children with physical disabilities are given the chance to be children - not "special" children, not children with disabilities, but just children.
