Caglewood is a Special Needs Camping Program that serves individuals with developmental disabilities through active programming that provides enhanced life experiences, personal development, and respite opportunities. Caglewood fosters the core development of those we serve by engaging them in activities designed to promote independence and confidence. Caglewood’s programming inspires spiritual and social development through communion with nature. A camping trip with Camp Caglewood consists of counselor planned and led activities, crafts, devotionals, hiking, camping, swimming, and various forms of physical therapy and adaptive skills training.


The Camp Caglewood program is designed to give individuals with special needs opportunities that they would not normally have. Our Weekend camping trips are truly unique as they offer our campers a genuine camping experience. We erect and sleep in tents, cook our own meals over a camp fire, hike, swim and much more! We even take groups of campers on overnight trips hiking approximately 10 miles of the Appalachian Trail .

All of our activities are designed to be recreational in nature, but to also hold underlying therapeutic and educational values as well. The program is built to not only give the campers a fun time, but to build self esteem and independence skills. We encourage our campers not to simply move outside their comfort zone, but to expand it. 

We feel that it is our duty to give our very best to the program; you will not find any members of the staff or the Board of directors who do not contribute both their time and money. In the same vein, we do not feel our campers should have to settle for anything that is second best so we provide only the best and safest camping gear, meal, and transportation. There are many programs for the special needs population that are just meeting the needs, but it is our goal to exceed them. Therefore, we are currently looking to raise enough money to buy a land where in the future we will push the limits of our campers and their integration with the main stream society even further, with a full fledged adaptive and occupational skills training ant therapy program, residential developments built for functionality and luxury, and a fully functioning outdoor camp and retreat center for programs for all populations of people.

This is an amazing organization filled with love. Our family was in need of much needed respite...but something fun, challenging and stimulating for our teen son. Our son had never spent the night away from us before and this was the perfect environment to let him try on his new wings of independence, while our family rejuvenated from the day to day world of dealing with autism.

Volunteers were amazing, and professional when it came to individual needs and medications! Itinerary non-stop fun! Our son was so disappointed to hear that he could not go EVERY weekend.

Not touch anything....small, professional and personable. Made us feel like a family outing.
