Greenville Optimist Camp WWTS

The Greenville Optimist Camp for Persons with Disabilities is a summer camp which serves adults and children who have received or are receiving Special Education services, regardless of age or ability to pay. The Camp is an overnight tent camping experience and offers fishing, boating, swimming, arts/crafts, nature experiences, trips, and nightly campfires.

The Camp provides weekly sessions by age group and is open to any family in the local service area.

The upcoming camping season is quickly approaching and planning is underway to provide the high-quality camp experience that Greenville Optimist Camp Wah-Wah-Tay-See (WWTS) is known for. Part of that planning involves identifying about $73,000, which is the cost of running the Camp. We are grateful to many individuals, businesses, and organizations that have stepped up this year and contributed to this very worthwhile endeavor.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lori Johnson at (616) 236-1037, or via email at loriJ@8cap.org. Camp phone (during camp only) is (616) 754-1376.

All donations to the Greenville Optimist Camp WWTS for Persons with Disabilities will be used to provide “camperships” to individuals that might not be able to afford the entire cost of attending camp. The cost of one camper to attend one session of camp is $250. We do ask families and campers to pay what they can, but we do not want to turn anyone away because of an inability to pay. Any amount that you can donate would be greatly appreciated! Donations will be made to EightCAP, Inc., which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so your donations may be tax deductible. EightCAP, Inc. is a Community Action Agency.
