Fall Weekend

Fall Weekend

A mini version of our summer 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 September/October each year at Timber Pointe Outdoor Center, which is an Easter Seals Camp, located in Hudson, Illinois. The campsite is fully accessible with climate-controlled cabins.

Space is limited so it’s recommended that you submit your application early.

2024 Fall Weekend is September 27th – 29th
Application not yet open.
