Vision, Mission and/or Purpose of Organization

Camp Orenda is a residential summer health camp for persons with disabilities. Accommodating 25-30 individuals with disabilities for each of it's 3 sessions, Camp Orenda offers a fun-filled week that challenges it's campers physically, emotionally and socially. It's a home away from home and a time that is treasured and anticipated throughout the year!

History of Organization

Camp Orenda was founded in 1968 by Dr. Mary McGruder as a health camp for underpriviledged children. Throughout the years, with great devotion by P.D.G. Lion Glenn Brant it has remained an integrated part of Indiana County as a health camp for people with disabilities. Many of our current campers are as old as the camp itself and would be more than happy to share their stories and memories with you.
