Horizon Camp is like no other organization’s camp… there truly are no barriers. From camper to volunteer, everyone is treated equally. Friendships have been made at camp that last a lifetime. There is no other camp family that can hold a candle to the Horizon Camp family…an amazing group of people who put on an amazing camp experience!
– Kathy Colunto, Camper
Horizon allows me to continue going to place I’ve treasured for over half my life. It gives us a week of fun memories each summer as well as a “camp family” for support and fun times throughout the year.
-Dawn Burns, Volunteer
You know that awkward moment when people do not know how to interact with someone with a disability? That disappears at Horizon Camp. People see themselves as what they have in common, not their differences. – Chris Gieck, Volunteer
Having a physical disability has never meant that achievements can’t be grabbed. Camp means dreams are developed; and possibilities are endless! – Shawnna Lynn Mitchell, Camper
Horizon Camp is a place where, once a year, people with disabilities can go and relax and have fun! For six days, your disability fades and you’re judged not by your physical limitations, but for who you are as a person. And believe me, that’s a refreshing change from everyday life! Camp is a magical place where lifelong friends are formed, spirits are restored, and fun is the number one objective! So, if you want to meet the most amazing group of people ever and become a little more amazing yourself, Horizon Camp is the place to be!
– Mona Nyman, Camper
You learn that when a group of people come together for a common cause, race, sex, religion… none of these matter. The heart takes over and complete strangers can make amazing things happen.
– Dan Persak, Volunteer
I’ve learned to recognize the appreciation for all of the volunteers & attendants that give of themselves to come to camp to help us out and help us have tons of fun. Campers are able to bond with one another, not be afraid since we are all basically in similar situation.
– Alec Edwards, Camper
I learned a lot about myself while coming to camp; one of the most important lessons I have learned is acceptance! I’ve learned to accept myself for who I am and not what others me to be. Also through self acceptance, I’ve learned to accept and embrace others.
– Nataly Aquilera, Camper
