What if my child has special needs?

We make an effort to accommodate all children. If a child has special needs he/she is very welcome.

We do need however to ensure that the child is enjoying the Camp, learning and engaging in the activities.

In order to do so it is important for the child to be able to follow the daily schedule and stay with the group.

We might request that the parent stay with the child or send someone that can do so.

Please note that the schedule of activities is different every day and that children are not assigned a classroom to stay in but rather move around the school during the day which means a lot of transitions.

If your child needs a regular schedule and less transitions this may not be the best choice for them.

Please contact us directly with any specific questions that you might have at [email protected] or call 1833-787-3754.
