Camp Summit, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars   6 reviews

Issues: Disabilities, Human Services, Sports

Location: 17210 Campbell Road Suite 180-W Dallas TX 75252 USA

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.
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.

After working with several charities benefitting children with special needs I have found Camp Summit to be incredibly accomodating. They also make every dollar count, as evidenced by their commitment to welcome everyone regardless of ability to pay. I highly recommend this charity.
