building community between those with and without disabilities

June 19-24, 2022

Siena College, Loudonville, NY

Malta Camp USA is an initiative of the Order of Malta and is something truly unique! Our Guests with physical and intellectual disabilities enjoy 5 days away, independent and free to enjoy new experiences. Plus, the impact of Malta Camp goes well beyond just the week – The friendships developed at Malta Camp create a robust community supporting our Guests year-round and longer-term.

 

Guests with disabilities and volunteers participate in the program side by side as peers, affirming each other’s dignity – while having a blast at the same time! Through friendship we build up and empower our peers with disabilities.

"Malta Camp means a lot to me. It’s an encouraging, and fun community that becomes a family where all of us shine no matter what.

 

When I have a hard time and need help, I don't feel like my physical and cognitive challenges are a burden. I experience with others my age, authentic and pure compassion, love, kindness, and inclusion. I don’t feel left out or scared I might do something wrong or have a hard time with an activity. We are able to have so much fun and have so many amazing experiences because we are all supported if we need it!"
