Camp Sp’Arc

Camp Sp’Arc is an inclusive summer camp for children ages 6 – 21. Our 2022 camp was based at The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Bel Air. Each week of camp, campers traveled into the community for an inclusive and empowering experience that is fun for everyone. Trips included: Leidos Field, Plumpton Park Zoo, Amazing Glaze, Conowingo Pool, Harford Lanes Bowling, Bel Air Golf Center, Chesapeake Therapeutic Riding, Havre de Grace Opera House and the Harford Artists Gallery. Each camper was partnered up with a “buddy” for activities, and some great friendships were started. We’re looking forward to our summer camp in 2023. Check back for updates.
