Please Note: Camp Forge is a traditional outdoor high activity camp.  It includes extended walking and physical activities, exposure to Texas heat and sun, exposure to dirt and dust, sharing living space with other campers, and situations with high sensory input that may cause sensory overload for some children.  Camp Forge may be a stressful and challenging experience depending on your child’s needs.  Gladney’s goal is to provide a positive experience for our campers, but we also realize that Camp Forge may not be suitable for all children.  If you have questions about whether camp would be a good fit for your child, please contact Kiante Conger.
