KAMP Dovetail is always the day after Father's day which is always the 3rd full week of June. We charge $20 for the week. We are a wholly volunteer run camp and will make every effort to accommodate any child with any special need.
More About Camp
KAMP (Kids And Motivated People) Dovetail is a volunteer run summer camp sponsored by Supplementary Assistance to The Handicapped ( S. A. T. H.) a non-profit organization. The camp is for children with disabilities in Highland and surrounding counties of Ohio.
The camp is held at the Rocky Fork Lake State Park in Highland County, Ohio. Each child who visits our camp is teamed with their very own camp volunteer. You will notice that we used the word volunteer instead of counselor. That is because everyone at our camp is exactly that. A volunteer! None of the individuals at our camp are paid for their time. Each and every person is there solely for the purpose of ensuring that the campers enjoy their week at camp.
Almost all of the materials used during the week of camp (tents, food, plates, cups, medical supplies, etc.) are donated by area merchants or individuals. This allows us to offer our camp at virtually no cost to the campers or their families. Our camp has been operating in this fashion for almost 30 years. Each year the camp staff selects a theme that the camp will operate under for that year. The 2009 theme was "KAMP Dovetail-Superheroes". The 2010 theme will be "KAMP Dovetail-Space Camp". You can check out pictures from camp in our gallery section. The week of KAMP Dovetail starts Monday, June 21 2010.
