About Us


We offer a wide variety of outdoor adventures led by trained and experienced leaders who guide children and teenagers in having an unforgettable experience.

Camp Independence is a special place for campers age seven and up with spina bifida and other neurological disablities. Like many Y programs, Camp Independence is about learning skills, developing character and making friends.  But few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn both how to be more independent and how to contribute to a group. At camp, we teach self-reliance, a love for nature, and the development of attitudes and practices that build character—all amidst the fun of camp fires, boating, archery, games, and meaningful relationships. Our counselors are dedicated to making sure camp is an amazing experience for every camper.
