Our Kids provides you with a list of camps for children with special needs or disabilities like Down Syndrome, autism, troubled teen behaviour, cerebral palsy, Spina Bifida, and other developmental delays. This list includes many overnight camps in the Muskokas, Algonquin Park, and the Kawarthas. These beautiful locations ensure that your child will live in unbelievably tranquil natural settings. Indeed, the Muskokas, Algonquin Park, and the Kawarthas are known for their quiet, calm, and secluded lakes. Your child will go to summer camp in a relatively private and uninterrupted area. Moreover, because your son or daughter will be in nature, he or she will have a plethora of opportunities to stay active in the outdoors.

Children with special needs require attention from trained professionals, which overnight camps offer. These staff members will keep your child busy with plenty of activities, like games, songs, swimming, arts and crafts, storytelling, archery, hiking, dancing, campfires, and canoeing. Playground activities like kickball, soccer, baseball, ball hockey, basketball, and bocce ball are also available. Children at these camps can build lifelong friendships and interact freely with other campers. Here are some other distinct advantages of special needs camps in the Muskokas, Algonquin Park, and the Kawarthas:

  • Since these camps are located far from your child’s home, he or she can gain independence, self-respect, and a range of skills that you may not have thought were possible. While your child’s counselors will always be around, he or she will be responsible for chores, such as making his or her own bed, and, more broadly, learning how to take care of himself or herself.
  • These camps offer education and recreational options for children in an environment of care and security, with staff specially trained to deal with children with disabilities or high needs. Specially trained staff members help campers whose disabilities might range from mild to severe. In addition, camp activities are customized for the children and medical aid is always available if needed.
  • Any learning opportunity at these camps takes place in relaxed and fun environments. Although schools for students with special needs are, of course, wonderful, education in a summer camp atmosphere is more natural and unforced. Your child may not even realize that he or she is learning, as gaining knowledge will be fully integrated with enjoyable daily activities.

Affordability

Ontario’s camps have a wide range of costs. That said, if you cannot afford camp fees, you could explore other resources. Some camps themselves might provide financial aid. You could also seek community support for your child with special needs. And, if you could prove that a camp will help educate your child, you may receive a provincial tax break. We offer much more rich resources and tips on how to afford summer camp.

Be sure to check out the profiles of camps listed below. Here, you will be able to find the unique programs, activities, and amenities that each camp provides.
