Summer Camp Fun for Children with Developmental Disabilities
Camp Hawkins is a summer residential camp for youth ages 8-21 coping with varying developmental disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorders, Learning disorders, Autism, brain injuries and/or other developmental delays.
Camp Hawkins sessions last for five days and serve up to 20 campers each week. Staff to camper ratio is one-to-one to insure that the needs of each camper are met. Registered nurses are on site at all times and staff members are trained and CPR certified. In addition to camper attention and support, special dietary needs are accommodated as well.
