Camp For All is a barrier free camp working in partnership with organizations to enrich the lives of children with chronic illnesses or disabilities and their families by providing unique camping and retreat experiences throughout the year. Dr. Paul Gerson, Dr. Robert Zeller and Larry Neuhaus, founded Camp For All in 1993. Their dream was to develop a camp unlike any other -- a place where there were absolutely no barriers for children and adults with special needs to experience the thrill of camping and nature, just like their able-bodied peers. Since this unique facility opened in 1998, thousands of children have attended. In fact, 7,206 attended in 2007. Many discovered or rediscovered the joy of life, that they were not alone, healed emotionally, and became strong survivors. From swimming and canoeing, to horseback riding and archery, the camp offers thirteen different activities as diverse as the campers we serve. Whether they live with cancer or cardiac problems, mental retardation, neurological disorders or renal disease, campers enjoy a range of activities that are uniquely designed to meet their varied interests and physical and mental abilities. Specially trained staff, adaptive equipment and barrier-free facilities enable maximum enjoyment and participation.
