About

Camp Summit is a "sleep away" camp for children and adults with disabilities located in Paradise, Texas (about 45 minutes NW of Fort Worth). We offer weeklong camp sessions during Spring Break, summer and fall months as well as weekend sessions and respite days. Campers are offered a wide variety of traditional camp activities in our barrier-free environment-all of which are adapted for our campers' abilities-and not limited to their disabilities. We have horses, archery, arts & crafts, sports & games, nature, and so much more!

We are looking for groups of any size, all genders, and all majors. Essentially, volunteers need to be 15 or older and have a strong desire to work with our special campers. We provide volunteers with meals and housing.
