Disability-friendly family camp currently accepting applications

Lexington, Nebraska, April 30, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — When you have a loved one with a disability, taking a family vacation can feel impossible.  

That’s why Joni and Friends, an international disability ministry, is hosting a summer Family Retreat in Nebraska. Family Retreat is a fully accessible camp environment that offers a haven to families living with disability so they can be cared for, rejuvenated and encouraged in faith.  

Volunteer buddies support, encourage and fellowship each individual with a disability, which allows siblings and parents to focus on quality time rather than caregiving. 

Joni and Friends is currently accepting applications for both participant families and volunteers.
