ESP is at it again - dreaming BIG for people with disabilities and their families. Currently, ESP houses its Athens programs in Watkinsville, and the demand is greater than the space. In the next few years, ESP will work to garner support for Phase 1 of the Hooray project, which will double the local capacity for daily transformative experiences for people in our community. It will also serve as the first of a few phases of a much larger and more comprehensive camp and retreat site in the future.

Imagine a camp with no limitations, a camp where kids of all abilities can access every part of camp, where accessibility is not just an afterthought but instead the forefront of every camp activity… where kids in wheelchairs can sleep on the top bunk and individuals with autism can safely and intentionally wander. Camp Hooray is the future camp for kids of all abilities.

What is ESP?

ESP is developing the industry leading camp for kids of all abilities. Designed through a partnership with the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech, Hooray will be the first-of-its-kind, fully-accessible overnight camp for children and young adults with disabilities. For these two schools, the 90-acre camp in Jackson County, Georgia is a living laboratory where students and faculty have the opportunity to create new and innovative structural and landscape designs.
