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. Last year we hosted 105 campers and 150 volunteers, including an eight person support team.
Summer Camp 2021
The health and safety of our community is our number one priority. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our 2021 Summer Camp will once again be a virtual format. Camp will run Friday, July 16th – July 23rd. The theme this year will be “Horizon Staycation”
All those who sign up with receive one free clothing item as well as a goody box with all the necessary tools you may need to complete the virtual activities planned throughout the week.
We also host a weekly Zoom hangout and other virtual activities throughout the year.
For more information about these activities click here. We will post updates on our website and also on our social media pages.
Despite Horizon Camp 2021 being virtual, we continue to strive to bring a piece of camp to our campers at home. The items on our wishlist will go in goodie boxes sent to our campers. Any donation will be immensely appreciated.
