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 thanks to generous donors and fundraising efforts throughout the year. Generous donors and fundraising make this happen. In 2019 we hosted 105 campers and 150 volunteers, including an eight person support team.
Our 2022 Summer Camp is returning to in person format!
Dates: Sunday July 17- Saturday July 23
Application: The 2022 Summer Camp Application is now open!
Vaccine Requirement: Participants will be required to provide proof of vaccination prior to attending camp. Currently, the COVID vaccine will only be required for Summer Camp 2022. This decision was reached after careful discussion and debate by the Pandemic Safety Committee. By requiring vaccination, we are able to avoid other restrictions during the week of camp, such as keeping participants in strict cohorts, and provide the safest camp environment possible in our first year returning to in-person camp.
Other FAQs: Please check our FAQ page that will be updated continuously as more details about Camp 2022 are decided.
