Camp No Limits is a non-profit organization providing camps for children with limb loss, and education, mentorship, and support to these children and their families, dedicated to making sure they never feel their potentials are limited.
The idea of a camp to motivate and educate children with limb loss and their families was originally suggested by Bambi Lombardi, an Otto Bock Health Care OT. Mary Leighton, an Occupational Therapist, researched the idea and formulated the plan which was to grow into Camp No Limits. She envisioned a place where children and their families could learn and experience the importance of physical and occupational therapy, adaptations, prosthetic options and peer support. As Executive Director, Mary has guided the Camp from the starting site in 2004, through the now 7 locations across the US – Maine, Missouri, Maryland, Florida, Idaho, California and Texas – helping children with limb loss and their families become empowered.

The Camp has four programs in their daily schedule of programs and events that are offered to campers and their families:
These programs train and teach the campers daily skills such as grooming, cooking, exercising, plus sports and arts. All these activities empower the youngsters and teach them that they can do more than they thought they ever could!
Camp No Limits provides inspiration for thousands of youngsters who may have felt insecure, limited, friendless. The Camp is an inspiration to us.
