Jordan River Village gives children who come here, magical days of fun and enjoyment. This is not a random game, or a passing entertainment of a playground or an amusement park, but a long and meaningful experience, full of excitement and laughter. Every moment in the day at the Village is carefully constructed, with the intention of creating unique experiences. For children living with serious illnesses or life limiting conditions, healing takes place on many levels, but doctors and medical interventions are only part of the process. Jordan River Village goes a step further; it replaces the isolation and sadness of having a serious illness with fun and friendship; it makes the dream of feeling like ever other child a reality, even if only for a few days.
