What our organization offers: 
Genesee Valley Rotary Camp (GVRC) provides a totally free outdoor, overnight camping experience for children with disabilities (ages 8-21).

Genesee Valley Rotary Camp ( GVRC), is a one week summer camp for young people (ages 8 - 21) with various disabilities. GVRC is a not-for-profit organization that became incorporated in 1963 and has served children and young adults from four surrounding counties (Livingston, Steuben, Wyoming, and Allegany) ever since. The camp experience is provided free of cost through the efforts and financial support of the Rotary Clubs of the Genesee Valley and through private donations. The camp runs every summer during August and is located in the beautifully rustic setting of Camp Sam Wood, in Pike, NY. GVRC services approximately 100 campers and employs about 60 staff members each summer. GVRC currently serves the following Western New York towns: Dansville, Wayland, Geneseo, Avon, Perry, Mt. Morris, Livonia, Lima, Fillmore, Pavilion, Nunda, Belmont, Caledonia - Mumford, Cuba, Friendship, and Wellsville. Our staff comes from a diverse background— from special education teachers to high school and college students interested in working with children with disabilities. The current Directors are Brian Bartalo from Brockport, NY, and Co-Director, Mark VanDurme, from Dansville, NY.
