Programs: Each year there are eleven one-week camp sessions during the summer and weekend sessions in the spring and fall. We have "camperships" available for nearly 90% of our campers. Even the most severely disabled are welcome at the camp where the camper to counselor ratio is 2-1. The benefits for the campers are endless...they can enjoy the outdoors with their peers while accomplishing personal goals. Families and caregivers get a respite from year-round care. Counselors are college students, some international, training in social service fields, physical therapy, and other special needs areas.

Mission:
Camp Summit grew out of a "camp for crippled children" founded as a service project by the Soroptomists in Dallas. Today the recreational, therapeutic programming includes fishing, swimming, horseback riding, performing arts, adapted ropes challenge course, nature study, arts & crafts, games and group activities. The mission of Camp Summit is to provide barrier-free outdoor experiences that promote personal growth and foster independence for children and adults with disabilities.
