Be sure to indicate the inclusion program on your registration form, and please contact us prior to registering to discuss your needs. We may be unable to accommodate campers with special needs if they are not registered through this program. All campers will be evaluated to determine that this program is appropriate for them and that they will benefit from participating. If we are unable to meet your needs, we are happy to provide referrals to other camps. Campers must be attending a public school and be able to perform self-help skills: feeding, dressing, toileting and grooming.
