Stories for ‘Can I Come Too’ Resource

A New Resource for

Christian Campsites

IMG_6961 (2)

Thank you for being willing to share your or your loved one's experience with attending or not being able to attend a mainstream camp with their peers.

We are creating this new resource because it is our hope that it will achieve two things:

  1. To help provide a voice for young people with disabilities who want the option of attending a mainstream camp
  2. To help Christian campsites on their journey in including more people with disabilities within their mainstream camps, through providing encouragement of the importance and providing biblical, practical and achievable strategies and guidance. 


To be able to meet this aim, we ask that you are honest when sharing your story. Not all stories are positive or have a 'happy ending', but some do. We understand that as Christians, it can be really hard to say something that might be negative or even critical against Christian organisations and services. However, change is unlikely to happen if people don't know or understand that there is a problem. Equally, we can be encouraged and inspired by stories of others who have done something well. In the form below, we are not asking you to rave or vent, but rather to share your experience honestly, whether it be good bad or ugly, in order to help the Body of Christ grow.

To share your story, please complete the form below.


Stories for the new 'Can I Come Too?' resource

Thank you for taking the time to tell us your story. People's stories are vital in creating awareness and can be the catalyst for change. They can help challenge, inspire and motivate others. Your story could be what motivates a person to make a change! We understand that the story you are sharing might carry some strong and raw emotions and/or might contain some personal information or touch on some sensitive topics. Below we have asked for your name and contact details, this is only so we can contact you if we have any questions or need some more details. If you would rather not share your personal details with us at this time, that is fine also.
If you want to include any names in your story but don't want to include their real names, please feel free to use pseudonyms and note this at the start or end of what you write. Where true names of people, campsites, schools or churches are used, Elevate Christian Disability Trust reserves the right to change these to pseudonyms.
Please select which option you would prefer.

Let's help create more opportunities for people with disabilities to attend camp!
