Through grants from the Milton and Frances Schloss Special Needs and Services Department, Camp at the J is proud to offer an inclusive summer camp environment with 1:1 advocates. Advocates are counselors that attend a comprehensive training based on working with children who have physical and cognitive disabilities. By providing this 1:1 assistance at no extra cost, it allows the camper to be fully included in the camp setting with the rest of their bunk-mates. Advocates use a holistic approach to enhance skills, build self-confidence, develop social connections, and foster independence. Campers receive a full assessment, written goals, and evaluation of progress.
