1) Fort Wayne Skyzone's "Special friends Night"

       Attend for free! Apply below and we will contact you after we receive your application. 

Join us for Special Friends night on the 2nd Monday (5-7pm) and Tuesday (2-4pm) of every month.  Sky Zone will turn off the music and dial down the distractions for the comfort of our extra special jumpers.  We welcome children and adults with special needs and their siblings, family and friends to jump for 60 minutes. A chaperone jumper is included with each special friend.  We will make every effort to accommodate all jumpers with any kind of special needs.  Space will be limited so please call 260-483-JUMP after completing your waivers online Tuesday - Sunday 11am-7pm to reserve your jump time!  Each participant must have a valid Sky Zone Fort Wayne waiver completed/signed prior to purchasing jump tickets and entering the Sky Zone playing court.  Those under 18 must have their waiver signed by their parent or court appointed legal guardian.   Waivers can be completed online at www.skyzone.com/fortwayne.  Please note that we will do our best to accommodate jumpers with all special needs.  All Sky Zone playing court rules will still be in effect during the jump.

Fun and adventure await you at Camp Red Cedar! We invite you to get outside and enjoy summer camp as it was intended to be — in the great outdoors!

We pack a full schedule of activities into our camps that include swimming and boating in our 10-acre lake, playing kick ball and archery on our sprawling activity field, creating works of art in our craft area, taking nature walks through the woods, singing around campfires and riding horses on trails. But the most exciting thing about attending summer camp at Camp Red Cedar is the awesome friendships (and memories) you will make!

Our facilities and equipment are fully accessible, ensuring that campers of all abilities can fully engage in all that Camp Red Cedar has to offer.  Although each camp has distinctive activities, campers of all abilities come together for shared activities such as swimming, boating and arts and crafts. Additionally, Camp Red Cedar offers specialty camps for children with Down syndrome, autism and diabetes.

Whichever camp you choose, you can be assured that campers are surrounded by highly trained staff in a safe and supporting environment, and that all facilities and equipment are completely accessible.
