Camp Riley is nestled within the universally accessible, 2,500 wooded acres of Bradford Woods.

For many of Indiana's children with physical disabilities, Camp Riley has become an annual tradition offering more than fresh air and sunshine. Returning campers and first-timers look forward to time-honored recreational activities like swimming, horseback riding and canoeing - and the opportunity to meet others with similar disabilities all in a setting tailored to fit their needs. Most importantly, campers gain a sense of increased independence in a fun and encouraging setting.

Recognized as one of the best residential camping programs in the Midwest available to youth with physical disabilities, the camp staff encourages campers to move beyond their limitations and achieve new heights.

From 24-hour licensed medical practitioners and nurses to accessible accommodations and customized levels of camp programming, each aspect of Camp Riley reflects expert consideration of campers' needs.

Camp Riley staff members receive extensive training to provide outstanding medical, emotional and physical support to each child.

Camp Riley has operated since 1955 and is located at Bradford Woods about 25 miles southwest of Indianapolis. Bradford Woods is a recognized leader in adaptive outdoor recreation and adventure challenge programming.

Camp Riley's ongoing partnership with one of the nation's top pediatric health care facilities - Riley Hospital for Children - provides a special comfort to families who know and trust the Riley name.
