Jewish summer camp is a place where values are taught, community is developed and lifelong friendships and memories are made. We believe that every child should have the summer camp experience that Camp Butwin has to offer. We strive to create the most inclusive and supportive environment for children of all ages and abilities.
Camp Butwin Inclusion Services are provided to campers with disabilities who request additional support that will allow for them to fully participate in camp programs. When registering your camper, please check inclusion if you would like to request these services for your child. These registrations will be passed along to Megan McClanahan, Inclusion and Accessibility Coordinator, who will work closely with families to gather information and complete our intake process. Upon completion, we will determine what Inclusion supports are necessary to provide meaningful participation for your camper.
The deadline to request Inclusion Services is April 1, 2019 and we cannot guarantee a space if the intake process is started after this. Returning campers have first priority and are required to complete the intake process each year.
“Since we moved to the area when our daughter was a toddler, the JCC's inclusion program has made an enormous difference in the quality of her life, and in the life of our family. The inclusion program has given her (and us) a loving, safe and fun environment that we truly believe we could not have found elsewhere in the community. Where many other organizations seem to put up with our daughter merely as a challenge or an obligation, the JCC welcomes her as a beautiful and adored child. No matter the activity - from day care to day camp to school-age vacation programming - they have always found a way for her to participate to the fullest. To her, the JCC is like a second home.”
“Our daughter has participated in the JCC inclusion program for many years. She attended daycare, School's out, and Camp Butwin. We were, and continue to be, SO impressed with the staff and level of care she receives. Communication is great, and staff members are always willing to meet with us prior to working with our daughter to receive training on her medical needs. They are always upbeat and seem genuinely happy to see her. Our daughter always has a great time at the JCC and has even made some friends. We would highly recommend the JCC inclusion program to any family considering it!”
