Bay Cliff Health Camp
Big Bay, Michigan, USA
MissionTo change the lives of people with disabilities in a therapeutic camp setting.
What We DoBay Cliff is a year-round, nonprofit therapy and wellness center for children and adults with physical disabilities. Bay Cliff's priority program is a seven-week, summer therapy camp session serving children with orthopedic, speech, hearing, and vision disabilities. The children work towards goals of increased independence and living a fuller life. Bay Cliff also sponsors a week-long recreational camp for adults with physical disabilities, an adaptive paddling workshop, a health and wellness retreat for polio survivors, winter recreation for the children and adults that attend our summer programs, family programs for children with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and obesity, and a professional development workshop for pediatric therapists.
Bay Cliff partners with non-profit organizations and schools interested in conducting programs at camp. These guest programs include health and wellness retreats, youth development camps, science and outdoor recreation programs, and volunteer and leadership trainings for people with & without disabilities.
Bay Cliff is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of community leaders and health care professionals who care about children. The Board employs an Executive Director, who is responsible for the administration and supervision of the program, facility, and staff.
