Campers participate in traditional camp activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, arts & crafts, target sports, music and horseback riding. Camp provides an experience of outdoor life for kids whose health issues make these activities often seem impossible, giving them the chance to develop independence and confidence.

We partner with organizations that serve our mission of providing a camp experience for kids and adults that have challenging illnesses or disabilities. Timber Pointe and our partners provide memories that will last a lifetime. For some it's more than camp, it's home.

Frequently Asked Questions
The camp I want to register for is waitlisted. What does that mean?
Some of our camps fill up faster than others. If you select a full camp during the registration process, you will be added to the wait list. If an available spot opens up, we will notify you. Try to register for camp as early as possible to ensure a spot!

A $50 deposit should be sent at the time of registration and the amount should be paid in full two weeks prior to the start of camp.

How safe is camp?
Safety is our priority. During the registration process, you will provide us with the necessary medical information we need, as well as information about the care your camper requires.
