Fall Weekend Camp

Horizon offers a weekend camp experience where adults with physical disabilities team up, usually one on one, with able-bodied volunteers for recreation, learning and fun.

Fall weekend will take place at Timber Pointe Outdoor Center, which is an Easter Seals Camp, located in Hudson, Illinois. Every cabin has wheelchair access. Space is limited so send in your application early.

If something comes up and you are unable to attend, please notify fallweekend@associationofhorizon.org  right away.
