The Special Week of Camp is a five day camp designed especially for the families of campers, ages 8-21, who may have social challenges and/or special needs.We provide a fun filled week of camp for kids with a variety of diagnoses which include physical, neurological, sensory and cognitive disabilities. The entire family comes to this week of camp which is designed to meet the needs of the parents and siblings as well as the exceptional campers.
