MORGAN’S IS…


Morgan’s is more than a nonprofit organization; it’s a movement of inclusion. At the core, Morgan’s believe that everyone deserves the right to enjoy and experience life, regardless of cognitive or physical ability. By removing barriers, Morgan’s can help bring together people of all abilities to understand each other better and build friendships and a better world.

Call her a catalyst, a spark, an inspiration. Morgan Hartman doesn’t realize it, but her ability to smile through physical and cognitive special needs spurred her parents – Gordon and Maggie Hartman – to do things never before accomplished for individuals with special needs and their families. Morgan inspired the creation of a one-of-a-kind theme park and other initiatives benefiting the inclusive community.

When it celebrated its grand opening on April 10, 2010, Morgan’s Wonderland became the world’s first theme park designed with individuals with special needs in mind and built for everyone’s enjoyment. Fast-forward 10+ years and Morgan’s now includes five fully-inclusive, Ultra-Accessible™ facilities where individuals of all ages and all abilities can come together for recreation and a better understanding of one another.

  • Morgan’s Inspiration Island – Water Park composed of five splash pads and a sensory-friendly boat ride.
  • Morgan’s Camp  - a camp for everyone with a particular emphasis on giving people with physical and developmental disabilities an opportunity to enjoy summer-camp-type activities alongside guests without special needs.
  • Morgan’s Sports – a place where everyone can play sports!  Includes a 3-acre Ultra-Accessible™ sports center offers fitness and fun for athletes of all ages and all abilities.
  • Morgan’s Multi-Assistance Center (MAC) - a center that improves the lives of individuals with disabilities and special needs through comprehensive and coordinated services. Morgan’s MAC’s services use a family-centered approach with full collaboration from the family.
