Hofstra Summer Camps - learn, play, grow - A choice that can change your child's life


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.

Registration Information
A consultation with the director of pupil services will determine acceptance in to the REACH Program. Please be aware that space is extremely limited. To set up an appointment for consultation or for more information, please call the Camp Office at 516-463-2267, or e-mail REACH@hofstra.edu. Prior to the consultation, the most recent copy of the IEP is required. Once approved, you will be contacted by the Camp Office to register your child; you will need to register immediately to secure your child’s place in the program. If you register without a consultation or approval, your camper will not be eligible for our staffing or consulting services. Thank you again for your interest in the REACH Program!
