Our vision is to provide a place where ALL campers will experience the fun, adventure, educational, and therapeutic benefits of traditional camping experiences regardless of their unique abilities.
Our mission is to build and maintain Camp Kamassa, Mississippi’s first and only year-round fully handicap accessible camp facility for children and adults with serious illnesses, physical and mental challenges, and other special needs.
People of all ages affected by special needs have limited recreational opportunity in our state. There is no other barrier free, fully accessible facility like Camp Kamassa in Mississippi. ALL campers will be able to participate in ALL activities.
After ten years, the vision for Mississippi's Toughest Kids Foundation is becoming a reality. Members of the Air Force, National Guard, Marines, and Navy from all across the country are gaining essential skills while helping to build Camp Kamassa. Their role in the camp's construction is part of the military's Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) which teams reservists with needed infrastructure projects in communities nationwide. As of summer-2021, 8 duplex cabins, 6 family cabins, a maintenance barn, an open-air recreation building, a multi-purpose building are all in different stages of completion.
