From campfire sing-a-longs and late night ghost stories to canoeing, nature walks, swimming, and arts and crafts, the Easter Seals Virginia camping program provides the excitement and activity of a traditional summer camp program in a beautiful, accessible setting.

Most camp sessions are six to twelve days in length but we do offer two twenty-day sessions and one twenty-six day Communication Camp. A team of staff members, led by a unit leader, lives with campers to provide supervision and personal care assistance as needed. Staff to camper ratio is based on each individual's needs and the average ratio is one staff member per two campers.
