Over the past 23 years, numerous children with various emotional, developmental, physical and behavioral needs have been able to laugh, play, and enjoy their summer days at Camp JCC. Each summer, this program has traditionally supported an average of 25 children with special needs such as autism, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, depression, sensory integration disorder, Tourette’s syndrome and others. Specially trained staff, referred to as “shadows,” are at the camp to provide support and accommodations to campers. These shadows are able to enhance a child’s camp experience by facilitating friendships, providing behavioral and emotional support, and/or assisting with appropriate accommodations. This year’s goal is to raise $20,000 for the camp in order to accommodate additional children seeking this experience and expand the program based on needs. Read more about the camp program here.
