North East Westchester Special Recreation
North East Westchester Special Recreation, Inc. is a community based therapeutic recreation program for children, teens and adults with developmental disabilities residing in Westchester County, New York.
We service those individuals who cannot participate in existing programs offered by Westchester based municipal recreation programs. Our programs provide experiences that inspire confidence building skills, foster friendships and cultivate meaningful relationships.
North East serves over 500 community members.
Many program participants have been attending our programs for years, some decades! Their families are grateful for the enjoyment their loved one experiences.
“The staff really took the time to get to know our son and treat him like a regular kid. Thank you for creating and continuing [these programs] for kids like my son. I can see his confidence has improved after being in your camp.”
“Everyone who works at Northeast are loving, kind people who genuinely love and care about children and adults with needs. My son looks forward to every trip to socialize and have fun with his friends and the counselors.
Be Kind Always,”
“Our son has grown up with North East who have become a second family. Their programs and staff are professional, nurturing and truly help these special kids expand their world. We are grateful to them and all that they do!”
The Warner Family
“It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb. It means an entire community of people must interact with children for those children to experience and grow in a safe and healthy environment. We love North East for being our village!”
“We feel so grateful to have this opportunity for our son. Not everyone accepts kids who are severely impacted by Autism. My son Arnold has made lifelong friends at North East. He is able to relax and be a kid, which can be a challenge for him. The staff is really caring and able to bring the best out in the campers!”
“Our son thought the world of his counselors. Overall, the most efficient special needs program we’ve dealt with. I wish school and CPE staff could be as amazing as you all have been.”
“The staff is EXCELLENT, programs are fun, entertaining and educational. All the staff we have interacted with have been fabulous. Our son looks forward to Saturday and spending time with his friends, he is comfortable with the staff.”
