The Center compiles a searchable list of summer camps for children with special needs in Washington State (we also offer a printable PDF version). To find a summer camp or program, scroll down and select the type of camp, special needs considerations, camp location, desired month, and then review your search results. The inclusion or exclusion of any camp in this directory does not imply endorsement or disapproval. The American Camp Association has information on accredited camps that serve people with special needs.
Is this your child’s first time camping? If you have concerns, the Kids Health article Sending Your Child to Camp provides strategies to plan ahead and help your child enjoy the experience. Teens should check out Planning for Time Away from Home from Home to plan a new daily routine while camping over-night, and get the most out of their time away from home.
Do you have a summer camp that you would like to list in the directory?
New camps are welcome. Please submit a Summer Camp through our website. The deadline to be added to the 2014 printed camp directory (PDF) has passed, but you can still be added to this year's searchable web database.
