Camp Pierce

Campers who are 20 years and older will participate in personally enriching activities within the community including volunteering, visiting parks and other organizations, and taking a fun weekly field trip. Campers will learn how to use public transportation, enhance socialization with peers and community members, increase independence skills, and build their resumes. When not out in the community, campers will be in the Lakewood Community Center to participate in crafts, sports, cooking, and other activities.

Each camper registered prior to the registration deadline will receive a camp t-shirt.


Sign up for one week or all four weeks. Each week of camp will be limited to the first 16 registered participants but must meet a minimum of 10 campers to be held.

  • Camp registration opens May 1, 2023, and closes on June 30, 2023. 
    • With limited camp t-shirts available, participants registering after July 1 may not receive a camp t-shirt.
