Based on the needs of your child, staff will be provided to ensure that camp is safe, fun and inclusive! Pre-assessment of the needs of your child will determine the necessity for the attendance of an aide throughout the camp experience.
Each week campers will get to enjoy an onsite form of entertainment (ex. music therapy, kids science fun, etc.) as well as a day trip activity (ex. Build-A-Bear, zoo, etc.). Morning activities include strengthening and stretching, movement and games facilitated by Abigail Aldridge. Afternoon activities include riding bikes, playing games, running a bake sale, water activities, and many more exciting and inclusive activities.
