Camp Courageous of Iowa
A year-round recreational and respite care facility for individuals with disabilities “… because we’re more alike than we are different.”
PMCI members began an endearing relationship with Camp Courageous in 1981 when board members toured the facility and recognized a tremendous need. Marketers were looking for an opportunity to make an industry-wide positive impact at a time when oil embargoes and negative publicity were depressing morale. Since then, PMCI members have contributed well over $1,000,000 to the Camp through various events and fundraisers.
Camp Courageous began with a land donation in 1972 and has grown and continues to operate strictly on donations, without government assistance, without formal sponsorship, and without paid fund-raisers. What this means is that everything that is given to the camp goes directly to benefit the campers. Camp Courageous™ is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. It is not affiliated with any religion or with any national organization (such as United Way). Additional information about the camp can be found on the F.A.Q. page or at www.campcourageous.org
