The Woodlands is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children and young adults with disability and chronic illness. Using its fully accessible and barrier-free facilities, the Woodlands' programs enable participants to experience social, cultural, environmental, recreational and spiritual growth.
Camp Woodlands, a 5-day, overnight, summer camp is a one-of-a-kind camp for youth and teens, ages 8-18 with varying disabilities and chronic illness where the emphasis is on the campers Abilities rather than their disabilities. This camp introduces campers to the wide variety of activities and experiences that the Woodlands has to offer. Traditional camp activities are modified to each individual by our trained and caring staff, within our fully adapted facilities. In addition, participants are able to connect socially with others in an environment of complete acceptance. Campers will involve themselves in activities that most campers enjoy every day, such as swimming, arts & crafts, nature activities, music, golf, archery and sports & games. All senses are engaged during their week at camp. Whether it is smelling nature while on a nature walk, feeling the texture of food ingredients while cooking healthy snacks, or hearing the crackle of wood while hanging out by the campfire with new friends, our campers gain the experience of being outdoors and a feeling of belonging.
