Special Needs Camp Options
Our inclusion programs offered at Somerset Hills YMCA Day Camp
and Camp Sunburst at Somerville YMCA
are for children with mild to moderate disabilities who are capable of thriving in a typically developing camper atmosphere and who will benefit from a fully integrated summer day camp experience. Our summer day camps often result in positive therapeutic outcomes through their recreational nature. Shadows assigned to children who need extra support will provide basic assistance with engaging in social and recreational activities within a group setting.
Carousel Kids Carousel Kids
is a week-long, camp-like program at Somerset Hills YMCA designed for children with more significant needs for support. It provides families with quality care for their child with special needs, and offers children the opportunity to learn and practice social and recreational skills, and have fun while making friends. Activities include swimming, arts and crafts, music, creative movement and outdoor games in a structured environment. We will utilize visual schedules, sensory tools and transitional prompts to help ensure your child’s success.
