    Overview

    Dream Oaks Camp provides programs for children with physical and developmental disabilities and chronic serious illnesses by offering camping experiences on weekends, at day camp and at resident camp. Our Mission: To celebrate the abilities and develop the comprehensive skill set of children with special needs and chronic illnesses ages 7-17 by collaborating with families to provide individualized result-based goals and family support in a camp environment.

    Our unique programs focus on each child’s abilities and are specifically designed to strengthen their social skills, behavioral skills, and comprehensive profound skillset in a safe, barrier-free environment. Our staff are dedicated to planning and modifying strategies for each session to include the participation of all, regardless of physical, medical, or emotional challenges.

    As a child attends our program, parents collaborate with staff to identify two targeted goals for the child to progress towards while at camp. By focusing on each child’s strengths and abilities, staff members help facilitate a child’s development by integrating their individualized goals into our daily schedule of unique camp activities. Because of our high caliber staff training and low camper to staff ratios of 3:1 or better, each child is able to receive a high level of individualized care and support, so that they are able to engage in adaptive camp activities, learn new skills and develop productive behaviors while having a blast.
