Virtual Camp 2020
It breaks our hearts to share that the 2020 camp season is canceled due to COVID-19. We will miss the friendship and smiles from our campers this summer. We are excited to offer virtual activities via our Facebook page, Anderson Woods Summer Camp. Please like and follow our page for continued updates. Each day, during the months of June and July we will have fun activities for campers and the public to view and participate with.
Some of the activities include: camp crafts, cooking lessons with camp cook Patty, barn and garden visits with caretaker Rome, trail hikes, stories with the camp counselors, and much much more. Please join us on our Facebook page, Anderson Woods Summer Camp.
About Anderson Woods
Nestled along its namesake, the Anderson River in rural Southern Indiana, Anderson Woods was founded in 1978, and is a private, not-for-profit corporation chartered to provide summer camp experiences, as well as other services, for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The founders of Anderson Woods, Judy and David Colby, shared a vision of providing an experience that would foster self-esteem and empower these Special Ones to fulfill the potential within. From 3 campers sleeping in tents the first summer, our camp, which spans 165 acres in Perry County, now welcomes hundreds of campers of all ages and disabilities who sleep in four cabins each summer. Our aim is to provide self-confidence, dignity, and choices to persons with disabilities who, too often, are given none. It is with much humility and hope that we walk forward to serve these Special Ones.
A Special Place For Special People
It is our mission at Anderson Woods to provide safe and dignified camping opportunities to children and adults with Special Needs. We provide a unique learning experience in a nature filled camp setting.
