Everyone can play camp

After welcoming some small groups this past summer, the fully accessible Morgan’s Wonderland Camp is now officially open. This one-of-a-kind accessible camp, offers people with disabilities the opportunity to partake in a variety of fun-filled activities. 

Located on 102 acres in San Antonio, the property features four climbing walls built to accommodate physical, cognitive and visual disabilities and zip lines with modifications for head support, upper-body support, a removable footrest and the option to bring an oxygen tank or ventilator. The pool offers a beachfront entry and a warmed area for hydrotherapy and cabins include wheelchair-accessible bunk beds as well as showers and bathtubs.

The camp is the latest development spearheaded by Gordon Hartman who was inspired to create accessible destinations by his daughter Morgan Hartman, 28, who lives with cognitive and physical disabilities. He has also established Morgan’s Wonderland, a fully accessible amusement park, and Morgan’s Inspiration Island, a fully accessible water park.

“We believe Morgan’s Wonderland Camp constitutes another of the world’s greatest places for inclusive, barrier-free recreation. Special adaptations enable people to enjoy these thrilling attractions just like everyone else,” Hartman said.

The camp can accommodate up to 500 campers and staff at a time. Family camps will be offered year-round at the site on weekends and the facility will be available for partner nonprofit groups to use during the week.
