Camp Summit

About Camp Summit

Camp Summit is a residential or “sleep away” camp for children and adults with disabilities. With weeklong camp sessions, weekend sessions and respite days, campers are offered a wide variety of traditional camp activities in our barrier-free environment.

Camp Summit hires seasonal staff for each summer and fall to fulfill a safe ratio of two campers to every one staff member. Most staff members live in the cabins (your "home away from home") with the campers during their one-week stay. Many of our staff are college students pursuing fields of human interest. We also work with international agencies to recruit personnel from all over the world. Benefits include salary, room and board, laundry facilities, wireless internet, and the experience of a lifetime!


Camp Counselor

May 2019 - August 2019 Paradise, TX
“I loved everything about Camp Summit! It's a place where everyone can feel welcomed as soon as you step foot on site. I've never had a place like that and I can thank camp for giving me a home, a place I can be myself, and forever friends. It gave me the experience of a lifetime with disabilities I've never known about until the summer and now I have so much more knowledge of the disabilities and how to work with them. Camp opened up my eyes to a whole new world that I now know that I want in my life in some way forever.”
