Welcome to Camp Vista, Where Potential is Limitless…
Camp Vista is a totally free weekend summer family camp for families raising children with autism and other special needs. Camp staff are trained professionals who work with special needs children on a daily basis. We love to see families flourish at camp and when they leave camp. It is our goal to see children connect with other children and families develop a network of support with the other families. We provide all the food and activities for the weekend and we delight in the smiles we see and in the changes we see in just a weekend.

There is no cost for camp! Remi Vista raises funds at our annual A Fairway for Hope golf tournament. We also have volunteers who help run the camp, which allows us to offer it free to children and their family. It is our goal to have families be blessed by their time at camp and not have to worry about any cost for attending.
Camp Vista is designed for families raising children with autism and other special needs, such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy, or other such syndromes or disorders. There are not any restrictions on who can apply, but it is important to note that there is limited handicap accessibility for the sleeping cabins. Therefore if families with kids with wheelchairs will definitely want to apply early. A group of knowledgeable staff will review the applicants and inform people of acceptance within a month before the camp.
Camp Vista occurs during June or July of each year at the Clear Creek Retreat Center at Whiskeytown’s NEEDS Camp facility. This camp has a large multipurpose room where we eat, watch movies, have dance parties, cool down from the heat, and hold our token store at which kids can use tokens they have earned for positive behavior for rewards. The camp has a lot of beautiful scenery including a frog pond, which all the kids love, a cool creek, a huge grassy lawn, volley ball court, nature trails and more!
