Providing a residential camping experience for people with disabilities since 1947.

Camp Summit is a one-of-a-kind camp for individuals with disabilities where the emphasis is on each campers' abilities rather than their disabilities. Traditional camp activities are adapted to each individual, provided in our barrier-free facilities, and implemented by trained, caring staff. Our campers are grouped by age, providing the opportunity to make friends within peer groups while having fun and experiencing new adventures.

Camp Summit is located in Paradise, Texas, just north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex on 460 acres of land. We are accredited by the American Camp Association and licensed as a Youth Camp in the State of Texas.

Our Programs

Our goal is to help children and adults with disabilities reach their own personal peak by providing recreational, therapeutic and social activities in an authentic, natural camp setting. The benefits of our camping program are endless! Campers are encouraged to try new experiences in order to gain self-confidence, increase personal independence and learn cooperation.

At Camp Summit, we never turn away a camper due to the severity of a disability, or an inability to pay.

Our campers may be:

Physically Challenged

(cerebral palsy, spina bifida, paralysis, etc.)

Developmentally Delayed

(Down syndrome, autism, intellectual disabilities, etc.)

Dual-Sensory Impaired

(deafblind)

Ages 6-99

(no upper age limit)
