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, a heated 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. Generous donors and fundraising make this happen. Last year we hosted 105 campers and 150 volunteers, including an eight person support team.
Summer Camp Update, 5/5/2020
The health and safety of our community is our number one priority. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is with a heavy heart that the Board of Directors informs our community of the decision to cancel Horizon Summer Camp 2020.
Our 2020 Summer Camp will be July 19th – July 24th as a virtual format called “Horizon at Home”.
2020 Horizon at Home Signup is now available. Signup online only. Only those who attended camp prior to 2020 can sign up. Please reserve your spot ASAP as we need to know a count for t-shirts.
The camp committee is hard at work planning some fun virtual activities. Stay tuned to the website and social media.
