*Based on age and number of attendees, campers will be divided into Tikvah and Shining Star groups. Participants are provided a 1:4 ratio by our highly qualified staff. Participants need to be able to participate safely in activities without one-to-one support and toilet independently. Campers are welcome to come with their own one-to-one support if needed. Parents must supply a packed nut-free lunch and beverage. Snacks are included. New participants must have an intake meeting with the Special Needs Director before registering. Each month is contingent on having an adequate number of attendees. Registration is required a week prior and will close as soon as all spots are filled.
