2018 Camp

June 16-23

56 days 'til camp!


The Alliance for Recreational Empowerment (A.R.E) Foundation provides recreational and educational activities for people with physical disabilities with the goal of empowering them to be active, engaged members of their communities.

Through local fundraising, A.R.E. makes it possible for children and young adults diagnosed with a variety of diseases to attend and enjoy a week-long summer camp in Middle Tennessee. At the fully handicapped accessible camp, the children swim, ride horses, boat, and fish in a safe, barrier-free environment.

Your donations and sponsorships are used solely to help pay for the costs associated with camp and other supportive activities throughout the year. A dedicated group of volunteers comprise the A.R.E. board with help from many other volunteers throughout the year.
