Special Camp

A SPECIAL WEEK OF FAMILY CAMP

Hope for Kids is excited to that we will again be offering a week-long camp designed especially for students, ages 8-21, with developmental delays.  This week of camp is for children and young adults with diagnoses like autism, Down syndrome, mental retardation and other developmental disabilities.  Typically these children and young adults are able to walk, but often need assistance with other care and behavioral needs.

This Special Week at camp will take place July 30-August 3, 2017 at Camp Hope for Kids in Schwenksville, PA. The registration cost for each camper is $395 for the week. Additionally, the cost for family member that comes to camp, is $50 to cover the cost of meals. Each camper must have at least one family member or same gender caregiver stay with them for the week.

Is the Special Needs Camp at Camp Hope for Kids the right camp for your child?
Our programs may not be a good fit for some children who present with aggressive or oppositional behaviors, limited language skills, limited cognitive ability or limited self-care skills.

Contact Melissa Burch at specialneeds.hopeforkids@gmail.com to discuss whether or not this week of camp can meet your child’s needs.
