Camp Trusted Parents

Camp's Mission:

To foster friendships between children with and without Intellectual and Developmental Challenges, and to improve their overall emotional, physical, and behavioral functioning through the aid of various therapies and traditional camp recreation.

Camp Description:

Our program offers an socialization opportunity that will minimize the invisible line that often separates individuals with special needs, from their typical behavior peers. Camp Trusted Parents focuses on building friendships between children with and without special needs, through the use of therapeutic activities and traditional camp recreation designed to promote fun and socialization.

Our campers will engage in playground fun, arts and crafts, field trips, sports, and much more. Every child will experience a new and unique adventure every week at Camp Trusted Parents.
