REACH Program

The REACH Program provides a safe and positive environment for campers with disabilities to participate in Specialty Camps/Learning Institute activities with their peers. In this inclusion model, they enjoy playing games, completing projects and other peer interactions. Campers in the REACH program may receive visual supports and/or modifications when necessary, under the supervision of the REACH director. Campers in the REACH program may also receive 1:1 support from a capable, hard- working volunteer high school student to help them navigate the camp schedule.
The REACH Program provides a perfect setting for ongoing interventions during the summer break. Campers have ample opportunities to generalize and enhance social and daily living skills.
