REACH Program

The REACH Program is an exciting opportunity for campers with autism spectrum disorders and other special needs to experience Hofstra Specialty Camps with peers. The REACH Program provides a safe and positive setting for campers with disabilities to be included in Specialty Camps, activities, and enjoy peer interactions, with supports and/or modifications when necessary (not applicable to Sports Academy Camps). 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.
