Come be a Caddo or a Quapaw and experience a week of camp and fun!
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, 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.
During the Summer Camps program, campers stay overnight from Sunday to Friday and are provided complete care by Camp Aldersgate's highly trained counselors, staff, volunteers, nurses, and volunteer physicians.
Come camp with us and meet new friends!
There are six sessions dedicated to children diagnosed with specific medical conditions including muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, diabetes, heart conditions, arthritis, kidney disorders, cancer, bleeding disorders, and asthma. The program works in partnership with local health agencies who recruit the campers and provide partial funding, as well as Med Camps of Arkansas, Inc., a not-for-profit project of the Arkansas Chapter of The American Academy of Pediatrics, who provide volunteer physicians for each week of camp, reviews all medical policies and procedures, and provides partial funding. Arkansas Children’s Hospital plays a large part in helping Camp Aldersgate’s campers. Arkansas Children’s Hospital encourages volunteerism among its nursing and medical staff to support the volunteer staffing needs of the Camp’s programs. Camp Aldersgate provides the site, the staff, the program design and funding.
