Inclusion Program

At Camp Southern Ground we believe that it is our differences that make all of us stronger when we come together. As an inclusive camp, we serve children ages 7-17, from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races and religions, with programs that challenge, educate, and inspire. We bring together typically developing children, children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), learning and attention issues such as ADHD, and Dyslexia, and social or emotional challenges. 

ACCOMMODATION and resources

As an inclusive camp, we are building our camp program to provide accommodations and resources to make sure that campers developing in different ways can get an amazing camp experience! In these early years of camp, we will be limited in the level of needs we can serve to those who are high functioning or who have mild levels of challenges.  As we continue to build out more facilities and resources we will increase our ability to serve campers with moderate or severe challenges.

To learn if we can provide a camp experience for your camper this year you can complete a camper application, which will include questions about your camper's background and level of need. We will contact you after we review your application and let you know what we can provide or ask for more information. 

During summer camp we will be providing specialized counselors, inclusion specialists, and behavioral experts who will help us to ensure that every camper has what they need to thrive at camp. We will also have nurses available 24 hours a day who will manage medications and any health concerns. 

If you'd like to know more about the inclusive nature of our program contact us! We're still developing and learning how to best serve your needs. Your input is appreciated!
