Camp Arowhon

Inclusion Programme

Why Campers With Special Needs?

We welcome campers with special needs each session.

For these children, camp is fun, growthful and safe, a place where they are fully included in the community and celebrated for who they are. For other campers, these children bring special gifts: By their presence they teach and remind us to respect every human and to know and cherish people who are different from ourselves. We have been welcoming our special campers for 20 years; they are important to us. Our campers with special needs live in fully integrated regular camper cabins, with an extra counsellor in the cabin to ensure that their particular needs are met.

Which Special Needs We Can Accommodate

We are able to accommodate campers with autism, developmental delays and Down’s Syndrome. Because of the rough terrain of our site, we cannot accommodate children with significant mobility limitations, and because camp requires group living, we also cannot accommodate children with behavioural issues. We can accommodate children with special needs for flexible session dates.
