The Painted Turtle seeks to reach beyond illness... to inspire children with life-threatening diseases to become their greater selves. It is our mission to provide a year-round, life-changing environment for these children and their families - one that allows children to participate in an authentic camp experience by supporting their medical needs and offers their families care, education and respite.
Dream Oaks provides day and residential year-round camp experiences for children, 7-17, with special needs and/or chronic illnesses.
Camp CAMP holds a series of 6-day/5-night summer camp sessions for children and adults with special needs who may not be eligible to attend other camps due to the severity of their disability or medical condition.
Camp Conquest is a Christ-centered, week-long, overnight camp for children and adults with special needs, chronic illnesses and disabilities.
Wonderland Explorers is a therapeutic drop-off day camp for children ages 3 to 5 years with special needs.
Our camp is available for all horse lovers of all abilities, beginning through advanced riders. Our ultimate goal is to teach each participant what it would be like to have a horse of their own.
