Historically, families who have a child with special needs struggle to find appropriate placements during the unstructured time of the summer. Camp Kelly aims to break down these barriers.
At Camp Kelly, we firmly believe in Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (I.D.E.A.). Inclusion for all children can create an environment that encourages everyone to concentrate on their strengths and celebrates diversity. The camp curriculum will provide unique opportunities and make a positive change that embodies I.D.E.A.
Groups are staffed with trained behavioral professionals and there will be a 4:1 in general, although families will have the option to choose to have 1:1 support depending on their child’s need. Scholarships and sibling discounts may be available on an as-needed basis. Please inquire early about scholarship opportunities.
