RECREATION UNLIMITED FOUNDATION
Who We Are: Founded in 1958, Recreation Unlimited Farm and Fun (Recreation Unlimited) is a 501(c)3 not-for profit organization serving individuals with physical and developmental disabilities and health concerns and supported through the development efforts of the Recreation Unlimited Foundation. The mission of Recreation Unlimited is to provide year-round programs in sports, recreation and education while building self-confidence, self-esteem and promoting positive human relations, attitudes, and behaviors. The Recreation Unlimited campus is housed on 195-acres, 35 minutes northeast of Columbus. We have worked very hard to make Recreation Unlimited a dream come true for individuals with disabilities and health concerns!
What We Do: In 2023, Recreation Unlimited was very successful in raising funds through gifts, grants, and special events to continue our mission of serving individuals with disabilities and health concerns through Summer Residential Camps, Summer Day Camps and Year-Round Respite Weekend Camps. Recreation Unlimited is one of the largest providers in the state of Ohio serving individuals with disabilities and health concerns in the area of sports, recreation and education. Recreation Unlimited is an ACA (American Camping Association) accredited camp, an Ohio Medicaid waiver provider and licensed through the Delaware County Health Department. Recreation Unlimited is debt free and fiscally sound.
Why We’re Important: We have always strived for our organization to be the "best in class" performing our mission at a first-class 195-acre accessible campus, with quality programs and a service team second to none. Recreation Unlimited is one of the largest providers in the state of Ohio serving both youth and adults with disabilities through sports, recreation and education. This is fulfilled through a safe, fun, inclusive and challenging manner. Through the generosity of our donors, multiple scholarship programs are available to help economically disadvantaged individuals with disabilities attend one of our year-round programs.
How We Impact the Community:
To fulfill the following outcomes for the individuals and families that we serve.
To fully develop their knowledge and physical abilities in selected sports and recreational activities adapted to their individual needs.
To educate campers about the natural environment.
To utilize social settings to promote positive human relations, attitudes, and behavior among campers and their typical siblings.
To challenge the individual in a fun, inclusive, and safe environment.
To position campers to achieve success in the least restrictive environment.
To offer respite services for families with 24/7 care of an individual with a disability or health concern.
How You Can Help: Any donation to our camps and camper scholarship fund would help so that we are in a great position to maximize our mission of sports, recreation and education for individuals with disabilities and health concerns now and into the future. Recreation Unlimited relies significantly on the generosity of many dedicated benefactors through fund raising activities that include corporate sponsorships, special events, direct mail, grants, endowed scholarships, construction support, planned gifts/bequests.
