Mission Statement
Camp Horsin’ Around supports organized groups to provide an outdoor camp adventure for children whose health is compromised or who have special needs.
Background Statement

Incorporated in 2002, Camp Horsin’ Around is driven by a dedicated board and small staff. Sitting on 191 acres on the Boyle/Mercer county line, Camp includes five cabins, a dining hall, open air pavilion, headquarters, and clinic ready to service campers every medical need ranging from band-aids to chemotherapy. Camp also has numerous activity areas (including a fishing/boating pond, rock climbing wall, in ground pool, and many more) where campers can relax and have fun finding the simple joys of childhood.

Impact Statement

Camp Horsin’ Around, having finished phase one of construction, has progressed into full operations this year. Our inclusion of two new cabins and a dining facility give us capacity to help 140 campers at a time. By the end of the year CHA will have hosted over 1000 happy campers with over 25 different needs/health issues. Next year we will offer programming for week-long, weekend, and single day retreats with the goal of helping more children from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky become happy campers.

Needs Statement
Volunteers are always needed; whether they are running activity areas, helping in the kitchen, or sharing laughter and songs our volunteers are a vital part of helping children become happy campers.  
Financial help to the organization is always appreciated, though the constant therapies and doctors visits make affording camp difficult for some families. Sending a child to camp for a week cost $175.
Given the outdoor setting and need of the respective child Camp needs a golf cart to help transport non-ambulatory campers between activity areas.  
CEO/Executive Director Statement In the rolling hills of horse country our camp gives children a unique place rejuvenate their bodies and their spirits as they find fun and adventure while building camaraderie with other children of shared experience. At Camp Horsin' Around children's hardships aren't what set them apart, they're what bring them together. We're proud help all our children become happy campers.  
Service Categories
