Where Every Child Experiences the Magic of Camp

By Shelley Divnich Haggert and Annette Bourdeau

For children with special needs, camp isn’t another place to feel left out or left behind.

Special needs and integrated camps can be a wonderful opportunity for youth with physical, developmental, emotional, behavioural or medical challenges to build their confidence, expand their skill set and experience new adventures in a safe environment.

A Fully Supportive Special Needs Camp

Since most children with special needs already experience integrated environments at school and at home, they may appreciate the chance to mingle with other kids facing similar challenges at a special needs camp.

Trained staff, facilities and activities are focused on supporting these children at this type of specialized camp.

For instance, Camp Kirk is like a traditional camp with activities such as swimming, arts and drama, but with more attention and support for campers who have learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), as well as some autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

With the camp’s high staff-to-camper ratio of 5:6, each camper receives the individual attention and support he or she needs.

“It’s geared toward having the kids push themselves at their own pace without being compared to others,” says executive director Henri Audet of the special needs camp near Kirkfield, Ont.

Finding Acceptance at an Integrated Camp

Children with special needs can also feel welcome and receive the support they need at an integrated camp. Many camps include programs that give youth with special needs the opportunity to interact with "typical" peers, as well as with siblings or friends.

"When children are exposed to a special need and the needs are explained, that awareness usually creates understanding and acceptance," says Vicki Harvey, a board member for Autism Society Canada who has a son with ASD.

Campers often have support staff, and the camp program may be adjusted when necessary to accommodate particular challenges.

Camp Awakening, for example, operates out of two mainstream summer camps (Kilcoo Camp for boys and Camp Oconto for girls). Campers with physical disabilities form a cabin group and take part in regular programs with able-bodied campers. At the same time, they enjoy activities that allow them to focus on building their physical skills, says executive director Tracy Morley.

From activities and facilities that accommodate campers to close supervision from well-trained staff, special needs and integrated camps offer every child the chance to experience the magic of camp while giving parents peace of mind.

Video: A Chance to Grow and Have a Blast, Too

For Jack, the best part about special needs camp was, well, everything. “I wish we could live here because there's so much fun, there's so much stuff to do,” says the seven-year-old. Find out how special needs camp gives children a chance to grow and gain wonderful memories, too.
