What's Happening at Camp?
Our summer camp provides a safe and fun experience for children, youth, and adults with intellectual disabilities.
For over 75 years, we have provided a unique holiday for many people who face daily challenges in their every day lives. Individuals with autism and other spectrum disorders, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, acquired brain injuries, and other intellectual disabilities have celebrated Belwood as a place they can call home away from home.
We are located at the heart of Belwood Lake in Belwood, Ontario, about 10 minutes east of Fergus.
Our program gives our participants a chance to make positive, life-long friendships and build on their social skills. We also offer an opportunity to try new activities in a safe, adaptable environment.
Our program is wheelchair accessible, an initiative we have been building for over a decade to become stronger and more useful to our participants.
Our participants engage in several activities throughout the day including dance and theatre, nature and science, arts and crafts, sports and field games, swimming in our pool.
“This camp has great lodgers who made me feel great and I feel like this is the only place I can be myself other than home. I would like to thank everyone for making me feel like Belwood was like home. You guys Rock!”
