AbilityFirst Camp Paivika

Camp Paivika opened in 1947 as one of the first fully accessible camps in the United States. Camp Paivika operates under a special use permit granted by the San Bernardino National Forest. Located in the beautiful San Bernardino National Forest, the camp offers overnight summer and winter/spring programs for children and adults with mild to severe developmental and physical disabilities such as autism, ADHD, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and Down syndrome. It is fully accredited by the American Camp Association. 

Children, teens and adults with mild to severe physical and developmental disabilities come to Camp Paivika in the summer for horseback riding, swimming, adaptive sports, campfires and cookouts, arts and crafts, performing arts and other enjoyable, enriched activities. With a sense of freedom inspired by time spent outdoors in natural surroundings, campers learn and develop new interests and confidence through guided play, social skills building and exploration. Camp Paivika is a year-round facility. In addition to its summer sessions, we offer a range of sessions in the winter and spring. These include weekend getaways for campers of all ages, off site camping trips, group ski trips for adults and more.
