  • Youth – Typically for ages 6-12
  • Teen – Typically for ages 12-17

Step 2: Choose the type of camp.

  • Traditional Summer Camps – provide campers with an experience incorporating a wide variety of activities that may include games, songs, and arts/crafts.
  • Specialty Summer Camps – provide campers with activities centered around a particular theme or focus.
  • Specialized Recreation Summer Camps – are specifically designed for individuals with developmental disabilities

Step 3: Read the camp description for your top choices.
Be sure to look for activities your camper will enjoy.

Ask yourself:

  • Does the camp require special skills?
  • Is the camp mostly indoors or outdoors?
  • Does the camp require a lot of physical activity or walking?
  • Does the camp include field trips or swimming?
  • Is the camp location convenient for you?
  • Do the camp hours accommodate your schedule?

Step 4: Visit the camp location to ensure that you and your camper are comfortable.

Parent Meetings

Camp Parent Meetings are a great place for you to have the opportunity to meet the staff who will be working with your camper this summer and to obtain important information about the camp’s operations. Please plan to attend the parent meeting(s) for your camper’s summer camps.

Inclusion Services

Inclusion Services supports access to typical programs by offering reasonable and appropriate resources to participants with disabilities or medical conditions who register for those programs. Resources may include but are not limited to: gathering participant-specific information from parent/guardian/service provider; providing supportive materials; providing program or site-specific training; and/or providing additional staffing for the program. Participants who indicate a disability or medical condition AND request an accommodation will be contacted by Inclusion Services for follow-up. Additional forms may be requested for Inclusion Services to better understand the participant’s needs. Participants who indicate a disability or medical condition and do NOT request an accommodation will NOT be contacted by Inclusion Services. Participants requiring a more intensive level of support may consider having their own personal assistant attend the program. (Assistants, volunteers, therapists, or other providers are required to complete a background check and information forms before attending the program). To ensure that adequate resources are in place for the participant, registration should be received at least two weeks prior to the start date of the program. Please contact Inclusion Services at 919-996-2147 for more information or to request an accommodation.
