Camp Experiences for Individuals with Special Needs
With strategic programming specially designed for individuals with special needs, our community’s camps provide meaningful and engaging experiences that support healthy lifestyles — physically, socially, and emotionally. Through Jewish overnight camp, Jewish day camp, and family camp weekends, those with special needs are made to feel that they have a place and a voice in our community — and that they truly belong.
