Each summer, hundreds of campers with physical disabilities and medical conditions make their “home away from home” at one of our eight Camp Riley sessions. Camp Riley is hosted by Bradford Woods and is made possible through the generous support of Riley Children’s Foundation. Bradford Woods, IU’s Outdoor Center operated by the School of Public Health-Bloomington, is located 20 miles southwest of Indianapolis in Martinsville, Ind. Camp Riley has offered unique programs for youth with disabilities and chronic illnesses since 1955.
Physicians practicing at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health provide medical staff for Camp Riley, including medical and nursing directors, resident physicians, nurses, and a pharmacy team. 24-hour medical care is available during camp.
Children can attend one of eight Camp Riley sessions offered during a nine-week span (see below for session details), with each session offering a staff-to-camper ratio appropriate to the campers’ needs. Campers experience camaraderie and thrills through swimming, hiking, horseback riding, vertical climbing, canoeing, art projects and other activities. New families may also attend Newcomers’ Day on Saturday, May 20 to learn more about Camp Riley. Questions should be directed to Bradford Woods at 765-342-2915 or email@example.com.
Thanks to the financial support of Riley Children’s Foundation, no camper is turned away because of financial circumstances. Donors interested in providing the Camp Riley experience to Indiana children with the gift of a campership should contact Olivia Mozzi at Riley Children’s Foundation at (317) 808-8557 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
