The mission of The Bridge Center is to support families by providing children, teens and adults with special needs the opportunities to build social, emotional, & physical skills so they may participate fully in their communities. We are committed to providing the supports that all families and children need to enjoy happy, healthy & productive lives. Our programs and services are designed to meet the needs of all individuals regardless of the nature or the severity of their disability, and our 20-acre campus is accessible to all participants.
We serve hundreds of children, teens and adults year-round through our Summer Camp, Year Round and Equine Assisted Programs. Children learn valuable life, social, and leisure skills through programs such as swimming, horseback riding, music, basketball, dance, soccer, drama, cooking, archery, nature walks, arts & crafts, boating, and fishing. The Bridge Center offers fun and growth for everyone!
Building Bridges to Play
Fun and play must be accessible to individuals of all ages. They provide opportunities to make friends, share experiences, discover abilities, and uncover talents. At The Bridge Center, we work to ensure that all children have the necessary supports to push their boundaries while having fun!
Building Bridges to Learn
The Bridge Center provides hands-on experiences in a safe, nurturing environment that empowers children, teens and adults to acquire meaningful skills they will use throughout their lives. In all aspects of our programs, participants and families learn to trust themselves, adapt to new situations, respond to challenges, and take pride in their successes. Our trained staff work with participants one-on-one and in small groups to ensure that learning is an integral part of every experience.
Building Bridges to Grow
Supportive experiences have the power to shape the way our participants identify their place in their ever-expanding worlds. Here at The Bridge Center, we help individuals develop the confidence, awareness, and insight that enables them to draw on their prior experiences for active participation at home, in school and throughout their communities.
I was very impressed at how thorough the communication is! I loved to see the reports and/or feedback about my son’s day each week. It feels great to talk with him specifically about his experiences. If there are any incidents that occurred while at camp, I was always well informed.
