Our Summer Day Camp Program provides an opportunity for children and teens with developmental disabilities to experience the benefits of participating in a local, community day camp program. Participants enjoy a six week program packed with swimming, field trips and a variety of special activities designed with the specific support needed for success in this environment. We provide at least a 1:3 staff ratio; individual assessment; on-going evaluation and collaboration with family members, school personnel and other outside professionals.

North East Day Camp Consists of Four Camp Groups

Groups are formed with consideration of age and ability.

The camps are staffed with nine experienced and competent specialists who are responsible for planning activities for the campers. Our specials include: Art, hobbies, gym, music, aquatics, outdoor education, horticulture and more!

Roadrunners

This program provides a structured play environment and social setting for young children who will benefit from sensory exploration, guided physical activity and cognitive stimulation.

Dragons

This program is for children who possess a high level of independence yet require guidance and support in peer relationships and skill development. Socialization with fellow campers and expression of one’s self are key to building a positive self-image.

Panthers

This program is for children who possess a high level of independence yet continue to benefit from staff guidance and support. This group will be provided with experiences to encourage increased responsibility and leadership, which will prepare them for the transition into our Eagles Group. Opportunities for success and improved self-esteem will be encourage through program participation.

Eagles

This program focuses on the enhancement of self-esteem and personal empowerment. Campers participate in the full range of camp activities adapted to offer maximum challenge and success. Responsibility and leadership are stressed in team building events, community service projects and our Counselor Assistant Program (CAP).
