Special Needs Summer Camps

Special Needs Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

To care for campers who require a bit more attention, numerous special needs summer camps have been established throughout the United States and Canada. Special needs camps are available for kids and teens who face a number of challenges including ADHD, autism, physical disabilities, diabetes, heart conditions, hearing impairments, weight loss, and more. Special needs summer camps are staffed by carefully-chosen professionals, teachers, and specialists who have considerable experience working with children who have special needs. Beyond creating a safe, supportive environment, special needs summer camps allow kids, teens, and their families to make friends and develop a support network for their particular situation.

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Special Needs Summer Camps

Residential special needs summer camps typically accommodate campers between the ages of 7 and 18. Some camps even allow friends and family members to share the experience with campers. Sessions vary by program, but special needs camps of 1 week, 2 week, 4 weeks, and 7 weeks in length are all available.

Tuition varies considerably at some special needs camps. Many are supported by donations, making them free or inexpensive for families. Still, many special needs camps carry a significant price tag because of the specialists and facilities they require.

Choosing the Best Special Needs Summer Camp

Because the needs of each camper vary so dramatically, it is often difficult for families to find a program that can properly accommodate their child. To help match families with the perfect special needs summer camp, Choice Camps offers free consultations with camp placement experts. Call our office at 617-264-0939 and we would be happy to help your family find a great special needs camp in all areas of the country.
