Specialized summer camps provide many benefits to children with special needs.  By enrolling in a camp designed specifically for the needs of your child, important social, communication, and sensory skills can continue to be learned during the summer months when otherwise regression can occur.  These camps promote independence, self-esteem, and confidence, all within a fun and safe environment!  Each of these camps are unique, and offer a variety of different programs and services for your child.  Be mindful when making a decision on camp placement... many programs can be tailored around the special needs of your child.
