Since 1979, CAMP has been providing recreational programming for children and adults with developmental, intellectual, medical, behavioral, and physical disabilities. We believe that “CAMP is for the camper” and our goal is to help every camper reach their maximum potential. Our 1:1 camper to counselor ratio and volunteer medical staff are key to providing a safe and fun-filled experience. To our knowledge, no other camping program has taken these radical steps to meet the daily physical, medical, emotional, and social needs of this fragile population. CAMP not only offers fun and safe enrichment activities for children with special needs, but for their siblings as well, providing parents much needed respite from child care responsibilities.
