The purpose of Matthew Salem Camping Foundation is to provide a healthy and enjoyable camping experience to children from all walks of life with special needs whether physical, social, or developmental. During our week-long camp each year, we accept campers with special needs including, but not limited to, asthma, Autism, Down Syndrome, Asperger's Syndrome, sickle cell anemia, scleroderma, ADHD, and learning disabilities.  Due to the nature of our camp, children are required to be fully mobile and able to bathe, clothe, and feed themselves. Our mission is to continue to offer a residential camping experience as long as there is one child in need.

*Camp Scholarships are available for those who qualify

We are already planning for MSC 2020!
