“Mighty Mike” Simmel  and The Bounce Out the Stigma Project manage  and run a camp like no other. A truly special camp where all kids can feel truly at ease without the traditional camp pressures. Children discover new skills, new friends and an inner confidence on how much they can accomplish when given the opportunity. We are pleased to have our inaugural year in Gainesville, GA  and special thanks and appreciation to our sponsor Cantrell

Camp Program:

Each day The Bounce Out the Stigma™ summer program at starts at 9:o0am (on court time) until 2:00pm daily.  We would like to have each group range for about 45 young people maximum co-ed ages 8-21. Because of our small numbers and resources available, we want each camper to receive a lot of individual attention for the time which they are going to be with us, and have a great week with allot of positive memories. Sessions will be made up of high focus and high intensity workouts. This is a camp for special needs children the intensity of activity is geared to special needs.

We will have at least ten community volunteers present to act as “BUDDIES” for children who may need more individualized attention with mobility, sensory, or health-related issues.  ALL CAMPERS MUST BE SELF-MOBILE.

At the beginning of the week, the children will be put into different squads. Campers will learn some of their activities in a team atmosphere while they have fun meeting new friends in a social setting. They will participate in workshops with drills to develop motor skills and coordination to build confidence and self-esteem.  Our campers will play basketball and learn new drills- to gain knowledge and self empowerment.

We encourage parents to view our video page and camp page to learn more.

 PLEASE NOTE: Each camper will be screened before camp begins to ensure they will have a fantastic experience. This is to make sure they can undergo the rigors of the week ahead of them and be put in the proper group. Camp will be filled with both challenges and fun, but we want to make sure that each child is both physically and emotionally prepared for the tasks involved.
