Camps & Recreation


Camps & Recreation

We offer several different camps for people with all types of disabilities. Our camps are barrier-free and designed to be accessible to everyone. A camp experience increases skills and enhances self-confidence while giving families much-needed respite from the hard work and responsibility they face every day. Additionally, these activities provide an opportunity to learn to problem-solve, make social adjustments to new and different people, learn responsibility, and gain new skills to increase self-esteem.

**Please note many recreation programs are currently on hold. Please inquire with contacts.


Camp Buckaroo

Camp Buckaroo is a week-long day camp for children ages 6-14 with disabilities and their siblings to attend together. Volunteers work one on one with a camper and act as their buddy all week at camp developing a strong bond! Each day has a different theme like "A day at the beach" or "under the big top" and all sports, music, crafts, and group games are geared towards the theme for the day. We offer five sessions of Camp Buckaroo so volunteers and campers can pick a week and location that fits their schedule. Camp hours are from 10:00am-3:00pm each day. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old to volunteer at Camp Buckaroo. All volunteers and campers must submit an application before attending Camp Buckaroo. Learn more.


Camp Smiles

Camp Smiles is a week-long overnight camp for children ages 6-14 with cerebral palsy. Volunteers work one on one with a camper and act as their buddy and personal caregiver for the week. Each day campers participate in typical outdoor camp activities like rock climbing, fishing, paintball, karaoke, swimming, and many more that have all been adapted to fit the needs of each camper. There are 10 cabins full of campers at Camp For All, an adapted camp facility in Burton, TX. Camp Smiles is only offered for one session. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer at Camp Smiles. All volunteers and campers must submit an application before attending Camp Smiles. Learn more.
