  • Description - Fowler Center

    The Fowler Center has been providing year-round camping experiences for children and adults with developmental disabilities and special needs since 1957. This includes individuals with mental and physical challenges, autism, traumatic brain injuries, and sensory and communication challenges. We offer year-round programming for children, teens and adults. Emphasis is placed on the ability of each camper to participate in camping experiences according to his or her physical, cognitive and psychological abilities. A concerted effort is made to remove any possible barriers and to create a secure, positive and reinforcing environment. All of our facilities are designed to meet the special physical, social, intellectual, emotional and motivational needs of our campers. We have a large, central dining hall and activity center where campers congregate for group dining, special events, and important social interaction. Surrounding this facility are six rustic cabins, which provide group living arrangements during residential sessions and an opportunity for campers to develop true friendships. Throughout the grounds of The Fowler Center are numerous activity areas designed with our campers in mind. This includes a central outdoor gathering spot for traditional campfires, camp songs and flag raising ceremonies. It also includes an organic vegetable garden that campers tend, a high ropes challenge course, a wheel-chair accessible tree house, a rock climbing wall, and platforms for outdoor camping. We’re situated on a beautiful lake for complete water sports and boating. Additional structures at the camp include our Equestrian Center, built in 2007, for therapeutic riding!
