Wondering about Special needs Camps? 

Here is what kiwi Camp America 2018 counsellor says: 

Areta Special Needs Camps14.jpg

Going to a special needs camp is such a crazy opportunity, not one that you should pass up ♥️ when you go and meet the campers you can see how much small things mean to people!
You literally wake up looking forward to seeing your camper and getting a smile on their face! 

 

I had one camper that was my favourite (one of 20+) and he refused to get in the pool but his Mum said he loved it at home and was learning to swim, short version he got in gradually and by his fourth visit with me as his counsellor he was swimming lanes with me (in a life jacket) and an absolute sucker for winning. Not very humble haha but his smile was worth all the time I had talking about star wars endlessly with him.

And that’s just one kid! Honestly, the rest are all as amazing and had me signing up for 2019 while I was still at camp!!!
