Special Session is a ministry of the Episcopal Church in Alabama, hosted at Camp McDowell. Each year since 1998, we invite over people with disabilities to come to a week of summer camp, staffed by youth and college aged volunteers, supported by adults. The mission of Special Session is to know Christ in all people, through ministry to and with people of all abilities.
Registration is open now at our website: specialsessionalabama.org.
“Special Session reminds me how much God loves his people and wants us to be happy, joyful, and kind. I am always overwhelmed with how much compassion, and mercy is present at special session. I think it inspires me every year to remember what "loving the Lord God with all your heart, mind, and strength" really means and living that belief by "loving your neighbor as yourself." These basic principles that I was taught when when I was young become so abundantly clear at Special Session.”
Grace, Special Session Counselor
