Dream Street was founded in 1975 with the mission that all children, regardless of their abilities, must be offered the chance to have fun, to make new friends, to achieve, to be accepted for who and what they are, and to learn from the challenges of group life. Both the children and the staff at Camp Dream Street benefit from the life-changing experiences the camp has to offer. Dream Street is a place where children with physical disabilities are given the chance to be children – not “special” children, not children with disabilities, but just children. This is the true magic of Camp Dream Street.

Dream Street campers are primarily from Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and West Tennessee and are between the ages of 8 and 14. All of our campers are children with physical disabilities. Predominant diagnoses of our campers include cerebral palsy, spina bifida, limb deficiencies, spinal cord injury, communicative disorders and other developmental disabilities.

We are able to accept approximately sixty children each summer to participate in our overnight camping program. Children applying to participate in camp should be between the ages of 8 and 14 and should have a physical disability or mobility impairment.
