About Highbrook Lodge

American Camp Association Accredited logoFounded in 1928, Highbrook Lodge is the first camp built specially for individuals with vision loss. Since then, we’ve been utilizing the benefits of our natural environment to promote friendship, growth, independence and self-sufficiency through traditional camp activities adapted to the needs of our campers.

“I’ve been a part of Highbrook Lodge for decades. The magic is still there, and it will continue to be there for as long as Highbrook exists.” –Camper Todd Jaffray
