Summer camp registration begins in March and continues as space is available.
This instructional day camp, for individuals with disabilities, allows campers to explore endless opportunities and have a memorable camp experience. Our vision is to create an environment which fosters new friendships, sparks the campers imagination, develops a greater sense of independence, all while having fun learning new skills and activities. Individualized goals will be established and measured by participation in classes such as sports, music, dance, drama, arts and crafts, nature studies, and field trips. Class instruction is offered in small and large group formats and activities can be adapted to meet camper’s needs. We are committed to ensuring all have an enjoyable and successful camp experience. Campers will be encouraged to participate in activities in a positive and safe environment while following the rules of camp. Campers will need to bring their own lunch (meal and drink) and necessary personal items. In addition to class leaders and camper assistants, Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialists (CTRS) will be onsite to work directly with campers.
