Camp Will

Camp Will is a therapeutic recreation summer camp for children, adolescents and young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Campers will be encouraged to try new experiences, learn new leisure skills, practice social skills, and make new friends. Activities include sports, cooking, arts & crafts, music, special events, and more.  

NEW TO CAMP WILL?
For all new campers, an assessment must be completed by a parent/legal guardian prior to online registration for Camp Will (online registration typically opens in March). New campers must also be present during the assessment. Please call (615) 790-5719 ext. 2033 to schedule an appointment. Please note: Assessment appointments are available between 8:30am-3:30pm, Monday-Friday, and are scheduled around ongoing Therapeutics programs and events. 
The deadline to complete new assessments for Camp Will 2023 is Thursday, March 2, 2023.

PARTICIPANT ELIGIBILITY
Campers must be a resident of Williamson County and be between the ages of 6-23 years* (campers must turn 6 before the start of camp).
*If a camper turns 24 during Camp Will, that camper can remain at camp for the rest of the summer. After the last day of camp, that camper will then be aged out of the program.

GROUP STRUCTURE
In order to provide a safe and fun experience, campers are divided into smaller groups (approximately 10-12 campers per group). Each group is staffed with 3-4 counselors. The ratio is 3-4 campers for every 1 counselor. Campers must be able to remain with their group. 
Please note: Campers who require a constant 1:1 may need more support than this camp structure can provide. If a camper requires 1:1 support, WCPR will gladly accommodate any qualified person or outside agency of the parent/guardian's choice. The additional support is at the parent/guardian's expense.
