We are working with VISTAS Education Partners to offer this week as an inclusion camp in the mornings between 9am-12pm, Monday-Thursday, welcoming campers with disabilities in 3rd-12thgrades. Because of VISTA’s specialization in visual impairment, priority will be given to blind/vision impaired campers prior to May 1st. After that date, registration will open for campers with other special needs. Inclusion camp is an opportunity to build relationships between children who often are separated in academic and social settings. Inclusion Camp Coordinator Monique Coleman will handle case-by-case registration, information, and financial assistance for campers with disabilities: Monique@vistaseducation.com.
Friday field trip for full-day campers: Crystal Springs Waterpark.
