That's what people with special needs ages 15 and up experience in Special Friends Camps! This all inclusive program encourages campers to participate in swimming, crafts mini-golf, field games, Challenge Course, music and chapel skits, group competitions, and much more!

Campers are provided camp counselor "buddies" who assist campers as needed and help them enjoy all that camp has to offer. Adult caregivers are welcome to attend at no additional charge, but are not required.

Special Friends Day Camps are four days long (Tue.-Fri.) 9:00am-3:30pm. Daily lunch and snack provided.

For more information about our Special Friends program please contact Laurie Fertello, Disabilities Ministries Director, at (425) 239-9841.


"It was a wonderful time of respite for me as the Mom. I felt totally safe leaving my special needs teenager."
"I am very impressed. It was all very well organized and everyone was so nice and very attentive to the campers."

2019 Dates and Prices

Warm Beach Camp Special Friends program is a DSHS/DDA contracted provider (Information is requested in application form).

Our desire is to prepare the very best camp experience possible and a large part of that is being sure we can safely provide the level of care needed by every camper. So, we are requesting the health information prior to actually confirming a registration rather than requesting this at check-in. For returning Campers, this information is an important way for us to review any changes that may have occurred over the past year. Warm Beach Camp desires to provide a safe and appropriate camp experience for all campers who attend.
