Atzama’im / Special Needs
From inception, Capital Camps has had an abiding commitment to the concept of ‘camp for all’. Our Atzma’im (Independence) program is designed to provide a meaningful immersive Jewish Camp experience for children with special needs. A shining jewel of our camp program, this fully-inclusive option mainstreams campers into traditional cabins where they receive additional staff support to ensure their success. Our ADA compliant facility provides improved access for those with physical challenges, and our talented supervisory staff guide specially trained counselors to guarantee a superior experience. All new campers participate in a low-key pre-camp screening prior to formal registration to establish that the placement is appropriate and to set expectations that are realistic for each individual camper.
We are proud that we are one of the few quality Jewish residential camps to offer this type of program which at present is available to rising 3rd through 10th grades.
We truly believe that our entire community benefits from interacting with Atzma’im participants as we live, play, laugh and dream alongside one another. Please be in touch with us directly for more information.
