Camp Able is a vacation, birthday party and family reunion all rolled up together. Camp Able is a gift of mutual respect and compassion wrapped up in silliness and love.
Camp Able was specifically created to provide a unique camping experience for persons with diverse abilities. We seek to love our neighbors as ourselves understanding that our neighbors don't always look, sound or think the same way we do.
Camp Jeffrey offers a short respite for the parents and caregivers of individuals with diverse abilities.

St. Mark's Preschool
St. Mark’s Preschool promotes an environment where the children are comfortable, valued, and respected as capable individuals. We believe that children benefit from spending time outside exploring their natural world. Being in the great outdoors, investigating the earth, and learning to love the written word is the focus of St. Mark’s Preschool.
Artists in Residence
ST. MARK’S HAS TALENT and we are a community that celebrates art in so many ways. We have a vibrant group of creative people; artists and crafts persons that enjoy doing things together and exhibiting our work for others to enjoy. We exhibit across our campus.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity is a nondenominational Christian housing organization. Habitat’s belief is that all people should have a safe, decent place in which to live. It invites people of all faiths to join our mission to build and renovate simple, decent, affordable houses.
Habitat provides a means to build community and fellowship within St. Mark's, and gives us the opportunity to show God’s love in action.
In the beginning of our DR Ministry, 20 children were saved from the streets of the poor barrio; today nearly 120 children spend their day at the Albergue Infantil El Bueno Samaritano instead of on the streets.
Because of your sponsorship, these kids are in a loving, nurturing environment where they learn, are fed breakfast and lunch and have an opportunity to grow spiritually, culturally, and socially.
Memory Loss Support Group
Meeting content includes a brief sharing and discussion with all participants. Caregivers then move to an adjacent room to share experiences and resources while those with memory loss stay with facilitators to participate in activities or conversational remembrances.

The Philippines Project, founded in 2008, supports the non-profit Dr. Theresa Kohen Foundation in the Culion Islands, a former Leper Colony which continues to suffer from poverty and limited resources. The majority of funds raised provide financial aid to over 100 students who could not otherwise attend school. As stated by Patricia Hilao, Foundation Director: “I believe only education can lift us from the stigma of leprosy that we suffer.” Additional funds provide medical aid, nutritional support, housing repair and other emergency needs for families designated by Ms. Hilao.
