Therapeutic Recreation Summer Camp

Therapeutic Recreation Summer Camp


Each summer, children, ages five and older, and adults with disabilities take a fun-filled break at Camp Horizon. Our dedicated counselors work individually with campers using a curriculum focused on therapeutic recreation and education. Camp Horizon is held from late-June through mid-August on the campus of Virginia Wesleyan University. Participants may attend day or overnight camp for a week or more.
