Today, there are camps to meet every interest, price range and schedule. Knowing your options, as well as your child's personality, will help you identify programs from which your child will benefit most.
In searching our database of ACA accredited camps, you should start with the basics, and then narrow your search to find a camp that matches your child's specific interests or needs.
Most offer a variety of programs for children starting at age seven. Resident camp options include coed, single sex and specialty camps that focus on a particular program. Resident camps offer varying overnight accommodations such as cabins, tents and tepees.
Similar to resident camps except campers are somewhat younger, starting at three years-old, and everyone returns home at the end of the day.
Campers can embark on adventures as varied as learning how to ride a horse, play sports, water ski, or dance. If your child has a special interest, there likely is a camp that specializes in it.
A physical, medical or mental disability is not a roadblock for a camp experience. Each year more than a million special needs children benefit from summer camp. Some camps specialize in serving certain groups while other camps integrate special-needs campers into the total camp population.
Children may stay at camp for the entire summer, a few weeks, or a few days. There is a camp session length for every child, budget and schedule.
Camp remains a very affordable option for most everyone. Fees vary depending upon the choice of camp, the facilities offered and the camper's needs. Many non-profit camps offer financial assistance based on need.
