Camp Never Ends

CAMP NEVER ENDS

Camp Never Ends started when a few friends from camp didn’t want camp to end by continuing to get together post-camp. During each of these outings, many people would post pictures and videos with hastags or chants of “Camp Never Ends.” One outing turned into multiple outings and many memories and stronger friendships. More of the Horizon community began to jump on board and even decided to visit some of their friends at their homes.

Many people with disabilities have a hard time finding accessible transportation to make it to these outings, so Horizonites decided to make a trip straight to them called Valentines Visits.

When the Board of Directors became aware of these outings, they decided they wanted to make it an official committee. Camp Never Ends was created to promote life-long friendships, support, memories, and inclusion. Camp Never Ends helps to keep the camp spirit alive all year long while making sure everyone in the community is appreciated, loved and cared for – just the way they are at camp.
