in 1968, Civitan was established in Williams, Arizona as "Camp Civitan" by a group of dedicated volunteers for individuals with disabilities.  Parents and volunteers were driven by the belief that everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the unique joy of summer camp-regardless of their abilities.  "Camp Civitan" created one of the first year-round camping experiences in Arizona with extracurricular activities for the disabled.

In 2003, Civitan Foundation expanded its program menu to encompass educational and vocational activities.  With programs year-round, we offer:  Camp Civitan, Respite Care, Recreation, Home-Based services, Community Outreach, Disabiltiy Education, Day Treatment Program for Children and Adults, a Thrift Store, Vocational/Job Training and Placement, Nutrition Education, Youth Volunteer Programs, Civitan Learning Center, and an After School Program for at-risk youth at our Thunderbirds Teen Center.

In 2013, Civitan unveiled "Civitan Village," supported by experts in the field of culinary, media, the arts, sports and health and technology. 


  • Commercial Kitchen that provides over 100 clients with job training and potential employment opportunities; cooking classes; production and distribution of Arizona’s Free and Reduced Lunch Program during the summer months.
  • Media, Arts & Technology Center hosts a broadcasting center and newspaper specific to the special needs population.
  • Art Studio & Gallery allows our clients an additional modality of self-expression and showcase their work.
