WHAT WE DO
Horizon summer camp is a week-long camp where adults with physical disabilities team up with able-bodied volunteers for a week of recreation, learning, and fun. Located in Hudson, Illinois on the beautiful shoreline of Lake Bloomington, Timber Pointe Outdoor Center is a fully accessible 170 acre campsite. Participants will take part in multiple adapted sports including archery, canoeing, paintball, and horseback riding in a safe, beautiful setting. Horizon camp creates and fosters a positive, inclusive, and empowering environment to all. Camp is offered free of charge to all participants.

Not cut out for a full week of camp in the summer? Horizon offers a fall weekend camp experience that is held in late September/early October each year. Fall Weekend is a condensed version of our summer camp in a smaller more intimate setting. Participants will enjoy 2 days and 2 nights sitting around campfires, playing board/card games and working on an arts and crafts project. Fall weekend also takes place at Timber Pointe Outdoor Center, in Hudson, Illinois. Applications come out in August each year. Stay tuned for our 2018 date.

Throughout the year, Horizon hosts multiple social gatherings around the Chicago area. On top of our summer and fall camp we want to continue offering activities year round to those with and without disabilities and their families. In years past we have held baseball and hockey outings, family picnics, holiday parties, and shop with a friend just to name a few.
