There’s A LOT to do at Morgan’s Wonderland Camp!!
Our challenge course has four climbing walls that campers of all abilities can enjoy, thanks to the original design and pulley system. The upper decks of the challenge course have a wheelchair ramp that allows an individual in a wheelchair to complete the course right next to someone without a physical disability.
Our ziplines are the first in the world to allow people of all abilities to fly across the sky in style! We have two thrilling ziplines; one is 450 feet long, the other is 700 feet long. They’re both 11 stories high! Each seated zipline allows two people to zip up the wire side-by-side or ride all by themselves. There are detachable head supports, a 5-point harness for individuals who need upper body support, an oxygen tank holder on the back, and a ventilator box. There are also variable speed controls to accommodate people of all abilities.
How high can you fly? This giant swing takes a team to operate! It is excellent for a group activity and shows how working together can be fun for everyone. While the Morgan’s Wonderland Camp crew secures the campers into a harness and attaches it to the swing, it’s the group of people who have to pull the rope to raise the swing, then let it go and watch the camper soar!
In addition to the San Antonio Food Bank kitchen and the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office Morgan’s Substation, the Edwards Aquifer Authority (EAA) has a building on site. The EAA is creating a $2.5 million, 9,000 square foot Education Outreach Center that will broaden our understanding of how the aquifer functions and the critical necessity of safeguarding our primary source of drinking water. The EAA will open its new center in the fall of 2021 and offer invaluable Community-Based Instruction (CBI) to schools, civic groups, and campers.
Giddy up happy campers and start horsing around at our beautiful new barn that houses ten gentle horses, specially selected to allow everyone to ride and interact with them. Petunia, our donkey, is also a favorite. You can enjoy a trail ride around Camp, or you can take a horse ride around our covered ¾ acre arena.
Learn about animals and get hands-on experiences in our nature center. It’s housed in the Camp’s original barn, modified so campers can meet, interact and engage with small animals and even some interesting insects. You can pet the pigs, sheep, and chickens and learn about different reptiles.
Cool off from the Texas sun in our pool area. This Ultra-Accessible™, fully-inclusive water area has something for everyone of every ability. Unwind in our relaxing river, take a dip in our large activity pool that ranges in depth from 3 to 9 feet, or enjoy our warmed pool for hydrotherapy. If that isn’t enough, then get soaked by cascading water from the tower at our splash pad. Our pools were made with everyone in mind! The zero-entry pools allow for individuals in wheelchairs to effortlessly transfer from their chairs into the water. We even have waterproof pneumatic wheelchairs.
Next to The Four Seas pool area is Bike Flatts, where you can enjoy bike riding on our 8-foot-wide concrete bike trails that wrap around the Vista Cavern cave. We have bikes for every ability! We have tandems, trikes, handcycles, recumbents, and bikes with training wheels for kids and adults.
