A year-round community of those with and without disabilities, energized by an annual week-long program, Malta Camp USA offers its Guests an opportunity for peer-based friendships and independence that can be difficult to find elsewhere. Built on a tradition of 40 years of Malta Camps in Europe, Malta Camp USA launched in 2022 to make the program more accessible to a larger number of people across the US.
“The White Cross Ball of New York City's support has been critical in helping us expand Malta Camp USA! Now in our second year, Malta Camp USA aims to more than double the size of our program — building a strong and growing community of individuals with and without disabilities.”
— Mary Delaney, Camp Director, Malta Camp USA
Malta Camp USA opens doors for many disabled adults who might otherwise lead shut-in lives. With most individuals aging out of support offered through school systems at age 22, camp provides a unique opportunity for its participants — both to try new and exciting things and to make new friends.
"You will arrive as complete strangers but leave as a member of the Malta Camp family. You will be loved by people who will form friendships with you that you will not find anywhere else.
— Malta Camp Guest
"There have been many movies made about superheroes, but none come close to the superheroes of Malta Camp."
— Parent of a Malta Camp Guest
