Special Needs Programs - Special Friends is “special” for all!
Special Friends Camps, designed for older teens and adults with special needs, make a big difference for campers and deeply impact the volunteers who serve as their “buddies.” Each camp is staffed with a high staff-to-camper ratio – often 1:1. Forty volunteers per week provide the necessary care, commitment, and level of support needed to make these friends feel really “special.”
