Camps "r" us - well, not exactly. But we do have information and resources if you're thinking of sending your kids to camp this summer.

Summer vacation often poses a challenge for parents of children with special needs.

Every camp should be fun, relaxing, and healthy, while offering positive and rewarding experiences to foster independence and self-esteem.

With a little digging, find out what options are available and what camps may be fun (and suitable) for your child.

In this issue of the Special Ed Advocate you'll find information on summer planning, guidance about choosing an activity to fit your child's needs, and resource directories of special programs.

We hope you will forward this issue to other friends, families, or colleagues.

Youth Programs and Summer Camps

Decide early in the process what type of program you want for your child--

  • highly structured, or a more relaxed environment
  • specially designed for children with special needs
  • geared for military children
  • free camps, or scholarship programs


Summer Reading Can Bridge the Gap

RIF tells us by the end of 6th grade children who lose reading skills over the summer will be 2 years behind their classmates.

Find a summer reading to help bridge the gap over the school holiday when kids can forget up to 30% of what they learned during the school year.


Finding the Right Camp for Your Child

Take some time to talk with your child about a summer camp experience and include them in the decision-making process.

To help you consider what works well for your child and what programs will suit your child's needs, check out what's available at Resources and Camp Directories.
