Blue Lotus Farm & Retreat Center, 501c3 nonprofit, assists those with profound life challenges of any age by providing accessible outdoor recreational and therapeutic opportunities in a caring, accepting, and inspiring 64-acre day camp setting. We know the benefits of nature and want everyone to have equal access to it. Studies show that enjoying a natural setting, like a park or forest, has many therapeutic qualities such as reducing blood pressure, anxiety and stress levels. Other research has shown it helps people sleep well, increase vigor and even boost immune systems.

Our main mission focuses on serving many populations:

  • with physical, developmental, cognitive, emotional, or mental health challenges

  • at-risk due to abuse, neglect, low income, or trauma

  • coping with terminal illness, chronic disease, or memory loss


Blue Lotus is funded largely by donations and grants. Nonprofit groups can book, for a nominal fee, our entire center as a backdrop for their group outings or individuals can join our programs for children with disabilities and their families. Businesses can also rent the entire property to host their work meetings or wellness retreats.
