Our award-winning, Special Needs Inclusion Program is designed to include children with certain special needs into the Camp J day-camp setting. Children are carefully paired with advocates in a 1:1, 1:2, or 1:3 ratio. We work with parents, children, staff, and support coordinators as a team to create the best summer camp experience possible. About 15% of our campers are in the inclusion program, ages range from 5 to 15. For more information, contact Emily Malin at or 520.299.3000 x168
