Therapeutic Recreation Camp

Therapeutic Recreation offers affordable summer camp experiences for individuals (ages 5-22) with developmental disabilities, intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, physical disabilities, emotional disabilities, learning disabilities, and/or attention deficit disorders. The summer will be packed full of special events, art activities, sensory play, games, sports, outdoor play, music activities and more.

All camp programs offer a variety of staff-to-participant ratios to ensure the different needs of all our campers are adequately met (ratios range from 1:2 to 1:5 at each site). Note: participants who require a constant 1:1 may need more support than this camp structure can provide. If you are unsure if your son/daughter will be successful in the program, please call the main TRS office to discuss eligibility.
