HIS-ability Since the 1950s Barakel has been “sharing God’s unlimited ability for campers with physical and mental disabilities” during our five day HIS-ability camp for age 18-50. We desire to expose each camper to as normal a camping experience as possible within the limits of their individual capabilities. The program is a careful mix of outdoor activities, leisure times, group events and opportunities to learn more about God.
