Our Medical Partners

Our medical partners play an integral role in educating patients and families about camp, and assist them through the admission processes. These partners work very closely with the camper and family liaison and medical team.

We’re proud to receive support and partnerships from all of Ohio’s children’s hospitals, as well as the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and in Indiana, Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. Physicians and staff from these hospitals refer campers and families to Flying Horse Farms and many are able to come volunteer for the week to provide medical care to our campers and families.
