Camp Red Cedar is northeast Indiana's only therapeutic horseback riding and summer camp serving children with and without disabilities. Located in northeast Fort Wayne, the 57-acre facility includes a 10-acre lake and sandy beach surrounded by woodlands and meadows.

White fenced pastures line the long drive leading to the equestrian center which has a heated indoor arena and an outdoor arena. Nearby are cabins, and nestled in the woods are large platform tents that are fully accessible enabling campers of all abilities to experience the fun and adventure of summer camp.

Summer Camps

Summer camp programs offer a variety of week-long day camps for kids with and without disabilities from June through August. There is a residential adult retreat, too.

Campers enjoy water activities such as pontoon and paddleboat boat rides, canoeing, swimming, floating and fishing. Games, arts and crafts, singing, campfires and making new friends are all part of what makes summer camp special. And all of the camp's facilities are wheelchair accessible, including the pontoon and paddleboat.
