Since 2001, Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH)has provided the compassionate care and support needed for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to thrive! Thriving in the summer includes lots of fun activities. BCH staff members not only offer daily care and support, but they are diligent in providing residents a wide variety of planned social and recreational activities.
Staying on the move, while enjoying engaging summer activities,
make days memorable. A highlight each summer is attending Happiness Retreat. The two-night camp experience is for special needs individuals and their caregivers. Trained volunteer staff lead four sessions over seven days that feature fun classes, activities, recreation times, and a talent show. The camp is sponsored by the Baptist State Convention of NC in partnership with Caraway Conference Center in Asheboro.
Every year, Happiness Retreat is something all IDD residents anticipate. Above, Chris Kiser from Stegall Home in Marshville and Victoria Houle from Lindsay Home in Zionville attend this year’s Happiness Retreat held at Caraway Conference Center in Asheboro.
