Camp is an epic adventure affording all who participate an opportunity to experience more of what they want in their lives; the freedom to be their authentic selves in a safe and supportive environment. The chance to love and be loved unconditionally, experience new adventure, risk without fear of failure, make lasting friendships, and most of all have FUN is the essence of Camp He Ho Ha.
“Camp to our family is a week of acceptance, understanding, safety, love, friendship, no “explaining”, and pure fun! Camp is what helps my daughter make it through the school year; knowing the summer and camp will come again.”

Camp He Ho Ha is one of the rare places where kids & adults with special needs are allowed to experience a true adventure holiday with peers in a safe, fun and caring environment with tailor-made activities to their capabilities. I am truly grateful that my daughter had the opportunity to take part in this exciting week of summer camp for the last 14 years!

I thought I was coming to camp to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities. These people ended up changing my life forever, allowing me to see how beautiful each and every individual is; allowing me to see beyond any “disability”, to the true ability in everyone. Working at Camp He Ho Ha has taught me more about life and all it has to offer than any formal education ever could.
Working at Camp He Ho Ha has given me a wonderful perspective on life and has changed the way I look at everything. The beautiful people that come here have taught me that who you are is always enough and how to really love properly, from deep down in your heart and soul. I have learned the importance of gratitude and how it allows you to find the bright side no matter what. The magic will stay with me forever.
Camp He Ho Ha is undoubtedly the most magical place on earth! What makes it so special for me as a counsellor is the focus on the ABILITY of the campers! The best moments for me, were watching the campers accomplish things they had never done before! Camp has shown me what it means to love unconditionally, the value of being unique and what it feels like to be truly happy! My life has been forever changed for the better because of Camp He Ho Ha!
