The Camping and Retreats Center at Bradford Woods offers both single-day and overnight programs and events for children with special health care needs anf their familites. Our overnight programs have been fulfilling the recreational and therapeutic requirements for both children and adults with disabilities and chronic illnesses for over forth years. All of our programs and services focus on meeting the individual needs of participants. Our low staff-to-participant rations promote engagement and empowerment and, of course, FUN!

Bradford Woods hosts many groups throughout the summer, and are well known as the best residential camping facility in the Midwest available to youth with disabilities. Many of these are sponsored by Riley Childrens Foundation. One such program is the award-winning week long Camp Kan Du, which is designed for youth whose cognitive level is assessed between 0 to 48 months.

Camp About Face, sponsored by the Craniofacial Clinic and Riley Childrens Foundation, is a week-long camp for children with craniofacial anomalies. Camp About Face is attended by youth from all over the nation. These are just a sample of the camps we currently offer for youth with disabilities and their families!

We also provide an environmental education multiple-day experience each summer for Monroe County Community School Corporations Adventure Camp Program. Children enjoy the 2,500 acres of Indiana woodlands while learning about their environment and the flora and fauna that inhabit it. Canoeing, archery, and swimming are a few of the other fun activities children take part in.
