JEMS Special Camp is a week-long Christian camp, primarily for individuals with developmental disabilities of Asian descent.  Sponsored by the Japanese Evangelical Missionary Society (JEMS), Special Camp runs concurrently with the other JEMS summer camps in the Santa Cruz area of Northern California.  The mission of JEMS Special Camp is:

To share the message and model the love of Christ to those with developmental disabilities, primarily of Asian Pacific American descent.

The goal of our camps is to provide an opportunity for the developmentally challenged to experience a fun-filled time of activities in an atmosphere of Christian love.
