From blasting off to space, to walking on the wild side and traveling through time, each session has a unique theme to deliver new summer adventures – week after week. Stepping Stones offers popular Overnight Staycations at our beautiful 47-acre Allyn Campus near Batavia and Summer Day Camp at our Given Campus in Indian Hill.
CREATE Your Summer at Stepping Stones
At Stepping Stones, “create” describes our camp culture of care and concern for the wellbeing of each and every camp participant. Our programs are designed for individuals with intellectual, developmental or physical disabilities.
All of our summer camp staff complete 80+ hours of training and background checks. Trainings include person-first approaches, First Aid and CPR. Activity adaptations and positive culture ensure that staff members treat all participants with compassion throughout the program season. Nurses are on-site during all waking-program hours. Lifeguards ensure all water areas are safe.
Stepping Stones is a judgement free zone! Be silly, try something new and make new friends. Participants are encouraged to be themselves every day at camp and thrive on a culture of respect and support.
Camp is a high-energy environment and participants are encouraged to join in! Campers can sing silly songs, become a star during a drama skit or show off their moves during a spontaneous dance party.
Keep your body and mind active this summer! Our staff will safely adapt every camp activity so that all participants are actively engaged. With sports, boating, fishing, art and more, there are so any exciting activities to try.
Discover new friendships! Reconnect with old friends! Camp provides small and large group activities that allow participants to strengthen positive social skills and develop a sense of community with their peers.
Camp is a place to try something new or practice a skill that a camper has not yet mastered in a nurturing and empowering environment. Participation at camp promotes independence and helps build self-esteem!
