Breakaway Summer Camp

For many families and individuals impacted by disability, freedom is often elusive. But at Lift Disability Network… we create camping environments that build community, strengthen faith and provide unexpected opportunities… all wrapped in fun! Come Breakaway with us!

Breakaway Summer Camp is a four or five-day family retreat designed to provide relaxation, recreation and spiritual renewal for the disability family. Families impacted by disabilities enjoy a week filled with pampering, water activities, arts & crafts and many recreational options. Every day is capped with a family event such as a barn dance, luau or talent show.

Each child, teen or adult camper with a disability is matched to a crew member we call their buddy for the week. Our buddies and programming staff serve each family with individualized attention and lots of love. At Breakaway Camp, we say “yes” to our campers! We work hard to help our campers discover they don’t need to be held back by limits. “Yes” they can achieve.

The strength of Breakaway Camp really takes place when families connect. Therefore, there are moments for peer-to-peer exchanges and disability life education that focus on renewing and creating a strong family bond.

At its core, Breakaway Camp is an opportunity for the disability family to connect to a loving God. Through the relationships made in over the days at camp, we can each see and experience Jesus’ example of love and acceptance.

Camp Wartburg

Never would have had this [experience] without the generosity of Lift.

[I] appreciate people pushing me to do things I may not have tried.

[Breakaway] was like medicine for me. It helped me to unwind and be myself and get to know others.
