Please note that Summer Trip Camp is not a special needs camp and cannot provide a level of support for campers who require 1:1 support in school, are in self-contained behavior support classrooms or who are prone to verbal/physical aggression.   If we determine that Summer Trip Camp is not where your son would be most successful we will provide you with referrals to camps where we believe your son could be successful.  Additionally, Summer Trip Camp is not a good match for parents who have separation anxiety from their children as campers are not permitted to have phones with them during camp.
