In addition to camps geared specifically for children with disabilities or special needs, many overnight and day camps happily accommodate a wide range of different abilities. A number of camps in the Upstate are not designated for “special needs” but welcome children with special needs nonetheless. You know your child’s strengths and challenges best.
