Flying Horse Farms
Where Camp is Good Medicine

Maybe you're a pro marshmallow roaster. Or a great storyteller. Or maybe you simply have a passion for kids. You can help children with serious illnesses experience the magic of camp.

We are seeking passionate volunteers to join our camp family as cabin counselors, activity counselors, and family sidekicks. If you only have a few hours to give--that's okay too. You can make a big difference as a kitchen, facilities, administrative or event volunteer.

At Flying Horse Farms we provide magical, transformative camp experiences for children with serious illnesses. Located on 200 acres just outside Mt. Gilead, Ohio, the camp hosts hundreds of children and families each year--free of charge.

The children who benefit from camp have illnesses including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, blood disorders, pulmonary disease, gastrointestinal disease, kidney disease, and craniofacial anomalies.

For a weekend or week at a time, being sick takes a backseat to being a kid. And fun is priority number one.

So pack your spirit of adventure and bring your talents to camp. We can't wait to welcome you around our campfire.

Our children are living with cancer, sickle cell disease, heart disease, severe arithritis, severe asthma, kidney diease, and cranio-facial anamolies.

Camp for these children could be theri first chance at independance, being away from home for the first time with the opportunity to hike, swim, fish, canoe, tell jokes and laugh until theri bellies hurt with other children whose lives are similar. They leave camp with a new idenity no longer being the child who may not have hair because of their treatments but the child who hit the bulls eye, caught the most fish, or created a masterpiece in arts and crafts.
