Every kid deserves a memorable Summer Camp experience! We understand that some kids may not feel comfortable in overwhelming situations, or may need a little extra support while they make those camp memories.
We have assembled a list of summer camps that are able to serve children of all needs, as well as children who may be facing challenging circumstances in their personal lives.
Please visit the camp websites for complete information. If we have left off a camp that you think is fitting, please add it in the comments!
