Camp Summit offers weeklong camp sessions during the summer and fall months and spring break and weekend sessions and respite days in the fall and spring seasons. Summer camps for kids and teens are typically held in July and early August.
As the name implies, the goal of Camp Summit is to help campers with disabilities reach their own personal peak by providing recreational, therapeutic and social activities in an authentically natural camp setting. The benefits of the camping program are endless! Campers are encouraged to try new experiences in order to gain self-confidence, increase personal independence and learn cooperation.
Camp Summit offers a 2:1 ratio of campers to counselors, with special one-to-one assistance when needed.
On-site medical personnel, including registered nurses and a physician-on-call, are available to ensure the safety and wellbeing of campers.

Camp Summit is located in Argyle, Texas, just north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex on 117 acres of land. Campers are offered a wide variety of traditional camp activities in our barrier-free environment which includes:
