Camp Xtra is an inclusion-based summer day camp that provides specialized support for children with developmental disabilities within the general H.E.S. Summer Camp.
Campers explore an array of safe and fun sites and community-based activities with all children in non-restrictive settings. In addition, specialized activities and trips are conducted to provide the participants an opportunity to de-compress, be empowered, and as well as explore new experiences tailored for them. To promote each Camp Xtra camper’s ability to have a successful summer, the appropriate level of assistance is assessed for each child based on their individual needs, from a group setting to a 1:1 camper/staff ratio. Transportation from local areas, breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided.
