This year, Camp Summit "Celebrates 71 Years of Making Camping Possible for People with Special Needs!" We offer our residential camp programs eleven months annually for children, adults and seniors with disabilities. All sessions are offered at our new barrier-free camp in Paradise, Texas and consist of 22 weeklong sessions: 2 spring break sessions; 11 summer sessions; and, 9 fall sessions. Weekend sessions, respite days and family fun days are offered throughout the fall and spring giving a variety of opportunities. Core programs include swimming in our beach entry pool, adapted archery, horseback riding, sports, adapted ropes challenge course with "Giant Swing", music, drama, arts & crafts, photography, and more - all adapted to each individual's abilities and needs.

Individuals with special needs often face many barriers that can limit their participation. These may include: fewer services available; accessibility to safe sites; financial constraints; mobility needs; medical needs; and, stigmas associated with their disability. Many times financial burdens associated with medical and caregiver costs make recreational activities impossible - leaving them lonely and isolated.

At Camp Summit, these issues are never a concern. We eliminate many common barriers faced by our campers through an open registration process, by providing a 2:1 ratio of camper to counselor, medical care so even the most medically fragile camper can attend safely, programs designed to be adapted for every possible need, and by offering camperships and financial assistance to approximately 90% of our campers with financial need.

Through our universally accessible programs we focus on Abilities rather than disAbilities!
"Beyond all the smiles and great camp experiences, the thing that stands out to me…are the counselors smiling and laughing alongside the campers who for this one week get to forget their disabilities. My brother loves his time at camp each year, and I'm so grateful for this phenomenal camp and group of people making so many great things possible for so many campers."~ Beth
