Horizon Summer Camp
Our summer camp program (Horizon Camp) is a week-long camp where adults with physical disabilities team up one-on-one with able-bodied volunteers for a week of recreation, learning, and fun. Located at Timber Pointe Outdoor Center in Hudson, Illinois – the site is just 12 miles outside Bloomington/Normal. The camp rests on 170 rolling acres of land on beautiful Lake Bloomington.
The site is fully accessible including air-conditioned cabins, an accessible swimming pool with ramp access, accessible shower facilities and a two story lodge overlooking the lake. Participants will take part in multiple adapted sports including archery, canoeing, paintball, and horseback riding in a safe, yet beautiful setting.
Horizon Camp creates and fosters a positive, inclusive, and empowering environment to all. The best part is camp is offered free of charge to all participants thanks to generous donors and fundraising efforts throughout the year. Generous donors and fundraising make this happen.

Anyone 18 years of age or older with a physical disability can attend the Horizon Summer Camp program. Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis. Acceptance is contingent on our Camper Criteria, a completed physical, availability of volunteers, funds, etc.
