Watch: Finding a Summer Camp: There is a camp in New England for every camper!
January 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Join us for a presentation and conversation around finding a summer camp. We’ll cover the overall camp experience touching upon the natural connection between camp and school, including how camps can fit into the extended school year (ESY) within your child’s individualized education program (IEP). We’ll look at processes and resources for finding camps, including tangible steps and resources families can use to find the right camp for their camper (or young adult…Camp is a phenomenal work experience too).
Our hope is that you find a camp that will safely take your child and return them happy, healthy, and having made friends and memories. For over 100 years, the American Camp Association, New England has maintained that while not every camp is for every camper, there is a camp in New England for every camper, regardless of ability!
