About Camp For All
Camp For All was designed with no barriers for children and adults with special needs to experience the thrill of camping and nature, just like their able-bodied peers. All of the programming is “universal,” meaning that the activities can be accomplished regardless of the campers’ challenges, be it mobility, emotional or learning issues. Camp For All provides an environment that is free of the barriers in the everyday world, such as 8-foot wide sidewalks to maximize mobility in wheelchairs, sloping entrance into the pool with a special lift, ramps, and myriad special saddles to aid horseback riders, low beds with wide space in cabins and large accessible showers and toilet areas. This culture of inclusion is underscored throughout the campsite and is truly built to “level the playing field” for all. Camp For All is the only recreational facility that accommodates the special needs community in this way.

This award-winning outreach program provides our amazing camp experiences, indoors and in town, for pediatric patients who cannot leave the hospital and come to camp and campers who do come to camp but need more “can do” spirit! Canoeing, archery, s’mores, barnyard animals, you name it, it’s happening! Serving multiple hospitals in both Houston and Austin, the impact on the campers is huge and the volunteers love it.
Camp Friends are Brenham and Washington County-based volunteers who give their time to raise awareness and raise funds for Camp For All. They choose their level of involvement — including volunteering at camp, office support, hosting cultivation events or chairing events in the greater Camp area.
