Camp Arowhon

Inclusion Program

Why Campers With Special Needs?

We welcome campers with special needs each session

Arowhon is a place where everyone, no matter their physical or mental status, is fully included in the community and celebrated for who they are. Campers with diverse needs 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. 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 a variety of special needs including autism, Down's Syndrome, and developmental delays. 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.
