Camp MARC has been of service to the mentally and physically handicapped of Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, and beyond for over 50 years. The concept for Camp MARC began with a few pioneering parents who wanted to offer their mentally and physically handicapped children an opportunity to experience summer camp like other children.
Thus, Camp MARC was formed. The campers consist of adults who have mental retardation as a primary diagnosis, while many also have some physical handicap as well.
On average, Camp MARC serves about one hundred campers a year from Western Kentucky. While there, campers participate in music, nature, sports, arts & crafts, swimming and boating. They also have the opportunity to be part of such activities as a talent show, Camp Olympics, an award ceremony and a dance.
