Camp Ronald McDonald® at Eagle Lake
July 7th- 16th and August 7th- 12th
Accredited by the American Camp Association, Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake is a fully accessible residential summer camp for campers who are "at-risk" with a variety of special medical needs, economic hardship and/or emotional, developmental or physical disabilities. This summer we will bring two sessions of traditional camping activities such as arts and crafts, hikes, fishing, canoeing, sports, swimming, talent show and campfires. Our campers typically have special challenges that would normally hinder their ability to experience the joys of nature and camp, however, this is not an issue at Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake. Here all barriers- physical and mental, are removed.
The goal of Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake is to provide confidence-building experiences and programs that are designed to support each camper's individuality through the challenges of outdoor group living and teamwork in a supportive environment. Our program areas help to further Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake's mission and allow campers with all types of disabilities to experience the wonderful program of Summer Camp! We staff qualified, trained Program Specialists in the fields of Waterfront, Sports, Outdoor Education, Arts and Crafts, Drama and Nutrition Education. Our specialists take the extra time to create programs that accommodate all our camper's abilities regardless of mobility, cognitive or emotional issues.
Campers will spend their days having both mountain and lakeside adventures with such adapted program activities as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, arts & crafts, drama, sports, nature walks, archery, and nutrition/cooking classes. Evening activities will include dances, talent shows, carnivals, group games and of course campfires! At night campers will reside in roomy, ventilated log cabins in bunk style beds. Each cabin cluster has a magnificent view of Eagle Lake.
