  • Who Are We

    Dream Oaks Camp is a nonprofit organization which provides therapeutic camping programs for children ages 7-17 with special needs and chronic/terminal illnesses. Dream Oaks Camp is located in Bradenton, Florida on beautiful Manatee River. We provide year round residential and day sessions for children with varying ability levels (both physical and developmental) and chronic/terminal medical conditions including: (but not limited to) autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, developmental delays and cancer patients. Our goals are to provide a special place for children and give them the opportunity to bond with others, build steps toward a greater self confidence, as well as strengthen activities of daily living and life skills, while providing respite services to parents and/or caregivers.

  • Our Mission

    The mission of Foundation for Dreams, Inc. is to offer an exceptional camping experience for children with special needs and chronic illnesses ages 7-17. Our unique programs focus on each child’s abilities, and are specifically designed to strengthen their social skills, self-esteem and independence in a safe, barrier-free environment.
