Camp Summit

Camp SummitCamp Summit offers every special-needs child the opportunity to experience the joy of camp. Campers are never turned away due to physical, mental, emotional, or financial ability.

In fact, Camp Summit is one of only a few camps in the country to accept campers without regard to severity of their disability. Financial assistance is available through a sliding scale fee structure and a partial and full scholarship program.

Camp Summit offers weeklong camp sessions during the summer and fall months and spring break and weekend sessions and respite days in the fall and spring seasons. Summer camps for kids and teens are typically held in July and early August.

The benefits of the camping program are endless! Campers are encouraged to try new experiences in order to gain self-confidence, increase personal independence and learn cooperation.

Medical care
