  • Description - Camp Aldersgate

    We offer camps for children and youth who have conditions such as cancer, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, diabetes, arthritis, asthma, epilepsy, kidney disorders, autism, Down syndrome, and mental retardation. Hundreds of campers come each year from across Arkansas and from surrounding states to enjoy an experience of a lifetime. Camp Aldersgate provides year-round respite programs, summer medical camping programs, summer and weekend camping for children with and without disabilities, a specialized youth volunteer training program, and one of the area's longest running programs for senior adults. Camp Aldersgate is one of eight camps in Arkansas accredited by the American Camp Association and continues to be the only camp in Arkansas designed for children with disabilities. Camp Aldersgate's summer camps serve children with medical, physical, and developmental challenges. The camps offer most traditional summer camp activities such as campfires and singing, canoeing, fishing, arts and crafts, swimming, and nature hikes. Like all kids, the campers want to try new and exciting things. With this in mind, activities have been developed that focus on creating more of a personal challenge. Some of these activities include: an accessible challenge ropes course, hand and/or foot driven catamarans, adapted archery, and a big hit with older campers, SCUBA diving. A priority is placed on adapting activities so that children of ALL abilities can participate and most importantly succeed. It's about creating opportunities for individual accomplishment in a positive and encouraging environment. Parents continually report increased independence, self-esteem, and social interactions following a week at camp.
