Camp Courage celebrates its 60th year of serving individuals with disabilities this year. In 1955, Camp Courage opened to serve campers with physical disabilities such as polio, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, as well as other congenital and acquired disabilities. To make camp a worthwhile experience, children with disabilities had to participate, be challenged and have opportunities to learn new skills they could use in their daily lives. The original camp location is now called the Lakeside at Camp Courage. In 1966, a new campus was added to serve children with communication disorders. Children with speech, hearing and language impairments were now able to have a summer experience that included speech therapy and education. This site, originally called Speech and Hearing Camp is now called Woodland at Camp Courage.
