Life Without Limits

Camp Riley is an annual summer camp program lets children with physical and cognitive diagnoses experience life without limits, and adventures that help them build confidence and friendships.

Each summer, more than 300 campers with physical and cognitive diagnoses make their “home away from home” at one of several Camp Riley sessions, enjoying facilities and activities that are designed to be barrier-free. Activities include archery, climbing towers, scuba diving, swimming, and waterskiing. To ensure a safe experience, staff from Riley Children’s Health provide 24-hour medical coverage.

Through the generous support of Riley Children’s Foundation, Camp Riley also removes financial barriers to families. No camper is turned away due to financial need.

Since 1955, Camp Riley sessions have taken place among the peaceful trees and cabins of Bradford Woods— Indiana University's 2,500-acre universally accessible outdoor recreational facility.
