Camp Claphans, which opened in 2013, is a summer camp for kids with disabilities. The camp serves children from ages 8 to 20 and is an outreach program of the J.D. McCarty Center.
The camp is named in honor of Sammy Jack Claphan, a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and an Oklahoma native. Claphan was a former University of Oklahoma and NFL football player who later became a special education teacher in Oklahoma.
