We have two major projects.

1. Camp Re-Creation, Weekend Getaway and ACE are residential camps for adults and children with disabilities to experience spiritual, emotional, mental and physical growth. For more than 38 years, our camps have provided hundreds of campers and thousands of volunteers the opportunity to create friendships and memories to last a lifetime through specially designed programs for those with special needs. These camps are operated by Orange County Catholic Charities.  LEARN MORE


Orange County Chapter Charities President, Bill Flood, presents a $160,000 check to Catholic Charities Director Tita Smith for camps and other activities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.  These funds are collected during each year by hardworking councils in the chapter.  Photo: Bill Flood, Tita Smith and Orange Chapter President Bill Schafer.
