why camp living wonders?
We created Camp Living Wonders to fill a need in Jewish camping opportunities for children with developmental disabilities. We know the difference camp can make.
At summer camp children try new adventures, learn to appreciate nature and discover who they really are, away from classrooms and parents. At Jewish summer camp children also gain a passion for Jewish life.
At Jewish, special needs summer camp children also develop independence, Jewish pride, make developmental strides and form extraordinary bonds with campers and staff. At camp, there is an opportunity to achieve around every corner.
The benefits don’t stop with that final hug at the camp gate. Camp changes lives for campers and staff members who carry the Camp Living Wonders spirit back home and throughout the year.
There’s wonder in a canoe ride on a still lake ... in a new best friend ... in a child’s happy smile.
