Mission Statement

Camp Chameleon is passionate about providing a track out camp to the severe/ moderate disabled child. The vision is to allow these children to have fun like other typically developed children, while keeping the cost affordable for parents. This will allow parents to work as their child is being stimulated and working on goals in a play enriched environment.

“As a teacher I looked for this type of camp for my students for many years and have not been able to find this service in Wake County. As I entered into retirement I felt the calling to offer this service to many parents and their child.” – Kelli Jackson
