About The Program

Campers with special needs are welcome at Camp Kef as part of our Mildred Special Needs Inclusion Program. Campers in the program are placed in age-appropriate groups with qualified, trained one-on-one staff. The goal of this program is to help foster an inclusive environment, where neurodiverse campers and campers with disabilities can enjoy the full benefits of everything Camp Kef has to offer.  This program is tailored to support and facilitate social development, peer interaction, and independence through experiences. Campers in this program spend much of their day in their assigned bunks amongst their peers.  

This program is provided at no additional cost to the family of the camper and is subject to our admission process and availability of a qualified and trained staff member.

Please contact camp director, Jordan Bravato, to find out more about this program.

Additional program for children ages 4-7 & 8-11

*There is an extra fee associated with the SEC program

We have partnered with The Social Enrichment Center to create a program for children with special needs in two age groups (ages 4-7 and ages 8-11). Children in this program spend the morning (9am-12pm) with an SEC Staff member for their social skills bootcamp, and then join their Camp Kef Bunkmates for the remainder of the day as a part of the Camp Kef Mildred Lasch Special Needs Inclusion Program.

As a center for neurodiversity and emotional and behavioral needs, SEC is the resident expert on social skills and behavior management!

Help your child get comfortable with their peers and prepare for the rest of the day at Camp KEF by focusing on:

  • Starting conversations

  • Maintaining and building friendships

  • Being flexible with peers

  • Using coping skills

  • Emotional regulation
