About this camp

Since 1967, Camp K has been dedicated to improving the quality of life for people of all abilities through education, recreation, and growth opportunities.

Our services are available to people of all abilities, levels of income, and place of residence. We host 3 types of summer camp experiences: Residential Camp, Day Camp, and Travel Trip Camps.

Campers have the opportunity to interact with and ride horses, climb/traverse the high ropes course, explore and learn about nature, swim, fish, canoe, hike, and engage in many other exciting activities. We provide opportunities for our students to improve their physical fitness levels, learn healthy lifestyle skills, access and enjoy their community, engage in the arts, sports, and adaptive recreation. We encourage them to stretch their imaginations, learn practical life skills, learn problem-solving skills, maximize their potential for independence, and build healthy bodies, minds, and spirits.  We also teach valuable 21st century skills, including self-confidence, self-control, persistence, flexibility, adaptability, curiosity, initiative, communication, and collaboration.  The benefits from our programs create a ripple-effect, impacting not only their lives, but the lives of their families, friends, and ultimately our entire community.

Camp K is the only agency in a 500-mile radius offering the same level of inclusive services, including residential and travel Summer Camps, on-site year-round equine-facilitated therapy and therapeutic riding, as well as year-round recreation and leisure programs (including transportation) for people of all ages of all abilities (including those with physical and cognitive disabilities) and special medical needs.

Camp K is located on a 25 acre property in Emigration Canyon.  Our facilities include a lodge with office space and commercial kitchen/dining hall, 6 cabins, 3 yurts, swimming pool, bath house, infirmary, horse corral and stables, indoor equestrian center with stables and arena, high ropes course, low ropes course, zip line, sports court, activities field, stocked fishing pond, paved patio/fire-pit area, and multiple trails.
