We are your neighbors who are interested in making a difference in the world one life at a time, one smile at a time.

Trailways Camp is based on tried and true camping fun where every day is “fun day.” We have designed this inclusive experience to encourage wholesome fun, foster new friendships, and offer parents and caregivers much needed rest, relaxation, and down-time. Drop off your loved one and leave the rest to us.

We know. We’ve been there.

Our family conceptualized Trailways Camp after the loss of our son Robert. He and his younger brother Benjamin were born with severe disabilities, and they truly enjoyed the time they spent while attending camps as children and young adults.

Benjamin passed away in 2020 leaving a legacy to us to carry on along these happy trails. Our boys showed us a void in the world of activities for adults with disabilities. We want to fill it with good ol’ camping fun. From sing-a-longs, arts & crafts, and campfires, to talent shows, and much more, we bring campers to nature while creating a special community experience.

Join us, volunteer with us, support us.

Our Measurable Impact

The first ten years: Every Camper, Caregiver, Staff and Volunteer is asked to complete a Trailways Camp Satisfaction Survey when they leave camp or at the close of a session. The lives of about 500 camper participants have been touched by 125 staff and over 1,000 volunteers who have shared their time, talent, and heart.

29
Camps (26 overnight camps and 3 Day Camp sessions)
4.5+
Satisfaction ratings have averaged between 4.5 and 5.0 (on a 5-point scale)
100
A desire "to come back" is universally expressed.

REMEMBERING

Robert and Ben had a very special relationship with their Grandpa Miller and Uncle Tom who were incredible supporters of the camping program. Mr. Miller, Tom and Fran

Miller, & Kathy and Terry Paramore have been donors and supporters of the Fund since it was established in late 2005 in memory of Robert V. Miller.

Grandpa and Uncle Tom are greatly missed, but their love, faith, inspiration and generosity will continue to inspire.

Future Legacy

One thing we all know is that there will be a day when we cannot do what we do now. The Founders have formally appointed their daughter Kristina Beuning as Successor Advisor to the Robert V. & Benjamin G. Miller Fund. In 2017 a Legacy sub account to the Fund was established. Provisions for leadership transition have been made through additional estate planning.
