We found this resource a couple of years ago after a father wrote inquiring if we knew of a summer camp for a child with autism. We didn't. We were able to find Summer Camps for Children with Disabilities. A publication of the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities, this 4-page guide links to directories and listings of summer camps--some of the directories are free, some not. Half of these resources identify camps specifically intended for children who have disabilities. The other half are simply directories listing camp opportunities available to all children. Your community is also likely to have summer camps or recreational opportunities available. The guide is updated annually.
