Where friendships are made and challenges are understood
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 experience for many people who confront challenges that may require an abundance of care beyond the ability of standard summer camps. 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, theatre, outdoors education, arts and crafts, sports, games, water activities, and of course, enjoying our accessible swimming pool!
