Camp For All was designed with no barriers for children and adults with special needs to experience the thrill of camping and nature, just like their able-bodied peers. All of the programming is “universal,” meaning that the activities can be accomplished regardless of the campers’ challenges, be it mobility, emotional, or learning issues. Camp For All provides an environment that is free of the barriers in the everyday world, such as 8-foot wide sidewalks to maximize mobility in wheelchairs, sloping entrance into the pool with a special lift, ramps, and myriad special saddles to aid horseback riders, low beds with wide space in cabins and large accessible showers and toilet areas. This culture of inclusion is underscored throughout the camp site and is truly built to “level the playing field” for all. Camp For All is the only recreational facility that accommodates the special needs community in this way.
More than 65 different not-for-profit Partners bring their camps and campers to Camp For All. To register your camper, you must contact the appropriate camp directly. The Partners provide medical staff who understand the specific needs of your child, “in cabin” counselors and leadership with an understanding of the specific needs of the group. Serving approximately 10,000 children and adults throughout the year, Camp For All provides opportunities for campers to find hope, grow in self-confidence, and realize they are not alone. Discovering they are not defined by their challenge, they focus on what they “can” do. Most of the campers that come to Camp For All come for free.
