Camp After Hours: Offers recreational opportunities for campers and their friends and families during our Spring and Fall seasons. From focused skill development activities to structured recreation to open-play, After Hours aims to offer something for everyone.
Autism & Intellectual Disability Sessions: these sessions focus on addressing the needs of campers with autism, down syndrome, and other intellectual disabilities that may require more behavioral supports and interventions. Campers are encouraged to use appropriate social skills and develop leadership skills by supporting their peers. Staff ratios are set at a 1:3 ratio with 1:1 support available upon request (must be made at time of registration with limited space).
Physical Disability Sessions: Sessions address the needs of campers whose primary disability is physical without cognitive or intellectual impairment. Activities are adapted to meet the needs of campers as each camper is encouraged to take on new challenges and try new activities.
Camper Centric (1:2) Sessions: Geared towards campers who need smaller sessions and more support to be successful, “Just for the Camper” sessions are set at a 1:2 counselor to camper ratio with additional counselors available to provide needed additional support when needed. Sessions may be designated as focused on autism/intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, or inclusive of all 1:2 support needs.
Travel Sessions: For the more experienced and adventurous campers to get a weekend, week, or more away from home and explore all the wonders of our world. (Campers must be able to ride in a 15 passenger van for extended period of time and need minimal care support unless session is otherwise designated. Staffing ratio is 1:4 Campers may sleep in unattended rooms.)
