Camp Thorpe in Goshen, Vermont – Serving children and adults with disabilities.
As Camp Thorpe’s facilities evolved, so did its mission. Led by Basil Walsh from 1933 to 1968, then by his daughter Joyce and her husband Bill Heath from 1968 to 1991, Camp began to serve individuals with a wider variety of needs. Children with developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy, autism, Down Syndrome, and more had the opportunity to experience summer camp. When the Brandon Training School closed and its residents joined our community, Camp Thorpe expanded its mission to serve adults with special needs.
