Oklahoma Special Olympics has made the difficult decision to cancel their in-person events for 2021 (www.sook.org). Based on this announcement, we will not be able to have Camp Perfect Wings this year.
We are sad that camp has to be canceled, but it is our responsibility and first priority to keep everyone who is a part of Camp Perfect Wings safe. Looking forward to meeting again in 2022.
About Camp Perfect Wings
Camp Perfect Wings is our primary tool for special needs. It is an amazing camp held once a year in the Spring/Early Summer and is designed especially for Kids & Adults with special needs who are age 8 and up. It includes morning and evening worship, guided activities like music, crafts, water games, target sports, motorcycle rides, horseback riding, cookout, and more!
Campers and Buddies
At Camp Perfect Wings, there are 2 types of attendees: Campers and Buddies. Below are the descriptions for each.
Note: The Oklahoma Baptist Convention is required to obtain a current background check on anyone 18 years of age and older. This cost is included in your payment.
The cost per camper is $120.00.
Campers are children and adults from age 8 and up who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. During the camp, Campers will enjoy games, activities, worship & Bible time designed with their special needs in mind.
