Camp High Hopes, Where Smiles Happen

Camp High Hopes offers year-round therapeutic recreation programs and respites in Sioux City, IA designed to enrich the lives of youth and adults with diagnosed disabilities, chronic illnesses, and other special needs. Our specialized programs include experiences in archery, canoeing, and nature education, among others, for individuals and groups with Autism, Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, and other intellectual and physical disabilities.

Coming from Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota, campers arrive with anticipation and excitement, leaving with smiles, new friends, and fond memories for years to come. Thanks to the support from our community, donors, parents, volunteers, and partners, we are able to continue to offer life-changing therapeutic recreation activities to the individuals who need them the most. Camp High Hopes is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of youth and adults who have special needs.  Camp High Hopes is accredited by the American Camp Association.

The mission of Camp High Hopes is to provide fun, safe, and adaptive recreational experiences for children, teens, and adults with disabilities, special needs, and chronic illnesses. 


Help support Camp High Hopes’ mission to provide year-round adaptive activities and safe respite care for people of all ages with disabilities!
