Spotlight

Making Strides of Virginia has entered into a partnership with Camp Baker of the Richmond ARC to provide services for their campers! Greater Richmond ARC’s Camp Baker is a full-service, handicap-equipped retreat located on 22 wooded acres near Pocahontas State Park in southern Chesterfield County. Camp Baker has been serving individuals with special needs since 1929 when it was a respite for undernourished children known as W.W. Baker Summer Camp. In 1957, ownership was transferred to Chesterfield County under the care of Greater Richmond ARC and renamed Camp Baker to serve children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Over the past 50 years, Camp Baker has undergone many renovations. Today it is a barrier-free, fully accessible facility providing a rewarding rustic camp experience for individuals with disabilities, as well as Respite Care, Adult Day Support and After School Services. State-of-the-art upgrades include the construction of a dining hall, an outdoor amphitheater and a 62-bed lodge to accommodate campers year-round.

For more information about Camp Baker Services (Summer Camp, Respite Care, Adult Day Support and After School Services), please call (804) 748-4789 or CampBaker@RichmondARC.org
