The Kansas Jaycees' Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Inc.  

We Support Summer Camp For Physically & Mentally Challenged Children and Adults 


The Kansas Jaycees' Cerebral Palsy Foundation has been awarded a AmeriCorps«NCCC program (National Civilian Community Corps) Grant!  This means that along with our regular summer staff and volunteers, we will be receiving 10-12 camper advocates ages 18-25 who will be working with us to provide program and support. 

What does this mean???  This means that we should be able to provide many more individuals the opportunity to experience camp this summer!  If you would like to help out this summer click here.

A note from our Executive Director......

Hello and welcome to The Kansas Jaycee's Cerebral Palsy Foundation’s family, we are happy that you have stopped by to visit and hope that you will find something here to help you.

We here at the CP Ranch are getting ready for our 42nd season of summer camp! We offer 6 weeks of camp for physically and mentally challenged individuals from age 5 to 75 and we have a blast making outdoor education fun and exciting for everyone. (click here for 06 camper application)

It is my job to carry out the Ranch’s mission which is to provide a program that gives individuals the ability to enjoy their highest level of functioning and independence, consistent with their abilities, in a summer camp setting. We do not discriminate we accept all physically and mentally challenged individuals.

The Ranch is the only facility in Kansas that serves campers with such a wide range of disabling conditions and the benefits to both our campers and their families are many.

When we write summer camp program, we try to not only give the campers fun and exciting activities, but we also seek to increase growth in 8 developmental areas – these include:

1. Social Interactions
2. Communication with Others
3. Responsibilities
4. Skill Achievement
5. Self-help
6. Self-reliance
7. Self-esteem
8. Participation in Recreation

Hopefully, we are able to provide a well-rounded camp program encompassing all of the areas above.

Our summer staff is well trained to work with the diverse population of campers that we see in a summer. (click here for paid staff application)  Along with staff members who are available 24 hours a day, we also have a medical provider on staff every hour of each day. I am sure that you will find our facilities well equipped and safe and you are welcome for a tour anytime – just call and make an appointment if it is on the off season.

Again, we hope that you find what you are looking for here and we welcome you to our family. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards,
Cheryl Schmeidler, Executive Director
