Counselor also receive ongoing growth and development sessions through out the summer during scheduled all hands staff meetings.

ARE KIDSROCK SUMMER CAMPS APPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS?

KidsRock Staff is trained to handle special circumstances to a limited extent. We have found that if children can function without an aide at school, they generally do very well at camp.

If your child does require an aide at school, you must ensure that an aide accompanies your child to camp.

All aids must be at least 21 years of age, trained professional trained to support your child and not related to the camper.

Over the years we have had many children with special needs, and they usually do very well. However, if for some reason it is determined that camp is not suitable for your child, the total tuition for the camp is non-refundable per our cancellation policy.

Please contact us during the registration process to discuss your child and their summer camp experience.
