Residential Camps

Camp Aldersgate provides programming for children ages 6-18 and young adults ages 19-35. We offer four medical camps which serve campers with the following medical conditions: muscular dystrophy, spinal disorders, diabetes, oncology, arthritis, hearing impairments; and other chronic conditions such as cardiac, kidney, and bleeding disorders.

Our two Kota camps and young adult camp serve individuals with intellectual, developmental, and/or physical disabilities. Kota campers are encouraged to bring a sibling or friend to camp. 

Camp Aldersgate’s programs provide the unique opportunity for campers to meet peers who share similar experiences and/or diagnoses while also having fun and experiencing new adventures.

Each summer camp session is one week long and runs from Sunday to Friday.

Summer 2023 Highlights

We could not provide these life-changing opportunities for our campers without the support of our medical advisory board, Camp Aldersgate Board of Directors, health agencies, medical team, counselors, volunteers, donors and community. Thank you to all who help make our summer camps possible!

COVID-19 Prevention Policy

Safety has always been our top priority. At Camp Aldersgate, Inc. we look to our Med Camps, Inc. board for medical safety guidance. Our medical advisory board still strongly recommends that all campers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. However, based on available research and the decrease in active cases, COVID-19 vaccination is no longer required to attend in-person camps for most of our programs including Kota Camp; Cardiac, Arthritis & Kidney Disorders Camp; Diabetes Camp; Spina Bifida Camp; Bleeding Disorders & Oncology Camp; and Weekend Camps.

We will continue to monitor the evolving health standards and recommendations from the medical community and adjust protocols as needed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Director of Programs at [email protected].
