camplightCreative Works Farm, the proud home of camp LIGHT, is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Virginia nonprofit corporation. We are developing an energy-efficient, environmentally responsible LEED certified children’s summer camp and community center. The special-needs youth and families served by this “green” showcase campus will be supported with fun and imaginative activities in a loving and healthy space. Our mission is to show kids with special needs and circumstances that life is only limited by their imagination, and to give them new tools and skills, along with love and support to inspire them to become anything they can dream.
Camp LIGHT has been established to provide services for kids with their special needs and their families. Both mentally and physically challenged, also including inner-city children and at-risk youth.
Camp LIGHT will be designed as healthy, sustainable , environmentally friendly facility. 
Camp LIGHT will offer typical camp programs such as  aquatics, animal management – equestrian ,zip lines, Arts, music ,theater,nutrition, Sports, technology, and team building.

We have been running a haunted attraction for 13 years called Twizted  Creationz . We have always supported local charities,  now the proceeds will help fund Camp LIGHT . Twizted Creationz is a haunted attraction with many optical illusions, startle scares and 3-D maze. This is a family-oriented event.


Creative Works Farm is 162 acre facility that will house the camp, 50s town,(special event area that will be utilized during Halloween and Christmas events). We will also be able to have school field trips, corporate retreats, and weddings. These events will  run at various times during the year and will help fund the camp.
Creative Works Farm is currently in its capital fundraising campaign  and we are seeking corporate sponsorship, private donations and product donations.
