Flying Horse Farms is a medical specialty camp that provides healing, transformative experiences for children with serious illnesses and their families – free of charge. Located in Mt. Gilead, Ohio, camp first opened its gates in 2010 and hosts about 900 children and families each year.
The children who attend camp have illnesses including cancer, heart conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, blood disorders, asthma, gastrointestinal disorders and facial anomalies. We’ve designed every detail of the camp experience to help our campers leave sickness behind while they’re here.
Our camp experience
Swimming, boating, fishing, high ropes, archery, and arts and crafts are just the beginning of the adventure at Flying Horse Farms. Each activity is designed to ensure every camper can participate and feel a sense of pride, accomplishment and freedom.
Our healthcare team
Flying Horse Farms is proud to have the support of eight Ohio children’s hospitals and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Campers receive first-rate care at our on-site health center, The WellNest, staffed 24/7 by medical professionals from children’s hospitals across Ohio and the Midwest.
