About Flying Horse Farms
Flying Horse Farms provides magical, transformative camp experiences for children with serious illnesses. Located just outside of Mt. Gilead, Ohio, Flying Horse Farms hosts hundreds of children and families each year—free of charge. Some medical conditions our campers have include arthritis, asthma, cancer, bleeding disorders, gastrointestinal disease, heart disease, and kidney disease.
Flying Horse Farms is the first Midwest camp to become a member of the SeriousFun Children’s Nework. Founded in 1988 by actor, philanthropist, and Ohio native, Paul Newman, the network has served more than 348,000 children and families from five continents and over 50 countries.
For a weekend or week at a time, being sick takes a backseat to being a kid. And fun is priority number one. Campers participate in activities like swimming, boating, fishing, archery, and arts and crafts. Campers also receive constant supervision and critical medical services at our 24-7, onsite health center, staffed by medical professionals from children’s hospitals across Ohio, and beyond
