More about our camp:
Horizons provides residential, recreational programming for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our two week summer sessions provide respite for parents and providers as well as an active, engaging program for our participants. A 1:5 counselor to camper ratio, plus additional program and leadership staff allow us to work closely with each camper to provide individualized attention to his or her special area of need including maintenance of academic skills, socialization, personal hygiene, independence and development of leisure time skills. In addition to our summer camp programs, Horizons offers opportunities for year round participation through our Weekends in the Country and Vacation Week programs between September and May. We are the only program at this point providing scheduled, predictable programming with overnight respite. A partnership with the Department of Developmental Services to provide 1:1 supports for children participating in the Behavioral Services Program has allowed a number of new families in the past year to become integrated into our programs.
Camp Horizons is Allergen-Friendly and Special Needs Accessible.
