Choosing a Summer Camp for Children With Special Needs

With spring fast-approaching, summer camp registrations are opening and many parents are deciding whether – and where – to send their children during the three-month break. Most share the typical concerns such as cost, commute, class size and quality of care. But for parents of children with special needs, these concerns can be magnified.

  • Will my child be able to fully participate?
  • Will my child get adequate attention?
  • Will they make friends?
  • Will the staff and other kids understand my child’s special needs?

You want to know that the recreation and education programs are going to be inclusive as well as safe and that your child will have the same opportunities as every other kid to grow, enjoy unique experiences and gain independence.
