About the campaign
For people with disabilities, these simple rights are often overlooked. At Camp Summit we focus on our campers' abilities, not their disabilities.
Campers participate in activities that most individuals can enjoy every day, such as horseback riding, swimming, archery, arts & crafts, nature studies, kaleidoscope, ropes challenge course and sports & games. Every activity is adapted for the needs of each camper, provided in our fully accessible facilities, and implemented by trained, caring staff.
All senses are engaged during a week at camp. Whether it is smelling nature while on a nature walk, feeling the texture of the horse and saddle while riding, or hearing the crackle of the fire while hanging out by the campfire with new friends, our campers gain the experience of being outdoors and a feeling of belonging.
We are able to offer a 2 to 1 ratio of campers to staff and provide all medical care for campers during their stay, our families and caregivers can be assured the health and safety of their loved one is a top priority.
At Camp Summit, we ensure that all campers with a desire to attend camp are able to do so, regardless of financial barriers, age, or disability. As long as we can medically manage their needs while at camp, they are welcome.
Our campers are truly remarkable. Your support will help ensure they always have a camp to call their own.
