"Amazing." "Life-changing." "Awesome."

Those are just a few of the words kids often use to describe their experience at Camp Riley.

The annual summer camp program lets children with physical disabilities experience life without limits, and adventures that help them build confidence and friendships.

Riley Children's Foundation's role is to fund Camp Riley. Thanks to donations, Camp Riley never has to turn away a camper due to financial need.

Every summer, Camp Riley welcomes approximately 200 children between the ages of 8 and 18 from throughout Indiana and several other states.

Confidence-building adventures

Campers have opportunities to experience a wide range of outdoor adventures, often for the first time, such as:

  • Horseback riding
  • Swimming
  • Waterskiing
  • Climbing Towers
  • Archery

Each camp session takes place among the peaceful trees and cabins of Bradford Woods— Indiana University's 2,500-acre universally accessible outdoor recreational facility.

We invite you to browse the links below to learn more about Camp Riley.

If you are interested in completing a camper application, please visit the Bradford Woods website for more information.
