Run by Sue Lein, a Camp Director who has a son with High Functioning Aspergers. I know first hand that is it very hard for our families to take a vacation or for our children to have a camp experience. My family has owned Camp Emerson for 45 years. I have always wanted to have a program for my son and kids like him. We have beautiful grounds, lots of activities and an atmosphere of caring and understanding. Please join us!
