Isanogel's residential camp program offers six and twelve day overnight camp experiences for children and adults with disabilities ages eight and older. While at Isanogel, campers have the opportunity to particpate in a wide variety of activities. Program areas include creative arts, nature, recreation and aquatics. Additionally, campers are able to particpate in a small-group club each day of their session. Camp Clubs include Discussion, Spirit and Newsletter. Each summer, campers look forward to swimming, tie-dye, ceramics, campfire cooking, dances, nature hikes, campouts and much more. Our camper to staff ratio is 4:1 or less, which makes each camper's experience safe and enjoyable. The Isanogel experience provides campers with countless opportunties for honing skills and building friendships.
