The former campsite for the Girl Scouts of Northern California is now the new home for Camp Wamp, a site for campers with physical disabilities.

In July 2017, the Stephen J. Wampler Foundation completed the purchase of the 129-acre property in Tahoe National Forest, near Lake Tahoe, Calif, which features access to trails and three lakes for water activities.

The Wampler Foundation is seeking volunteers and contractors to help with retrofitting and upgrading the property to make it suitable to serve campers with physical disabilities beginning in the summer of 2018.

When all upgrades are completed Camp Wamp will be able to welcome up to 100 kids at a time with conditions such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, spinal bifida, amputation, and spinal cord injuries.

“The kids we welcome to Camp Wamp are among the most brilliant minds you can find amongst young people anywhere—they are just like any other child except they have some sort of physical limitation,” says Stephen J. Wampler, in a media release. “Our new campsite will allow us the opportunity to host more weeks of camp and more campers for decades to come.”

The Stephen J. Wampler Foundation was founded in 2000 to provide outdoor recreation programs for children with physical disabilities at no cost to their families.
