Smile Camp

Smile Camp is all about putting smiles on the faces of First Coast children with disabilities for nearly 50 years.

Elementary school children with cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, autism and vision or auditory impairments are invited to attend this week-long day camp at Crystal Springs Elementary School in Jacksonville, FL.

Smile Camp is planned and staffed by rising 9th-12th grade Girl Scouts. Counselors receive hands-on, intensive training and are paired with a camper each day, allowing counselors to get to know the specific needs of their camper and allowing campers to feel comfortable with their counselor.
