More About Camp
CAMP provides a summer camp experience for children with no verbal communication or self-help skills or with the need for multiple medications around the clock, tracheotomies, ventilator support, gastronomies, etc., when appropriate health care providers can be enlisted. Depending on the need of the camper and availability of volunteer counselor, we strive for a counselor-to-camper ratio of up to 1:1. For siblings without disabilities, our the ratio may be 1:5 or higher.
