Civitan Foundation, Inc.
The Civitan Foundation’s longest running, and most beloved program offers week-long camp sessions throughout the summer, and weekend adventures once a month during the rest of the year. Founded in 1968, Camp Civitan is a 15-acre wheelchair accessible facility for developmentally disabled children and adults in the cool Northern Arizona pine country town of Williams.
Thanks to the interactions with camp staff, our campers gain new self-confidence, skills, and independence as a result of their camp experience. This is a result not only of the rural, residential camp environment, but also due to the targeted, enriching programming provided at Camp Civitan. Our camp programs are designed to promote positive, healthy lifestyles while building meaningful and lasting relationships.
