Integrated Camp Program

Ages: 4-15

Camp Finberg offers our Integrated Camp Program to invite more of our community’s youth to participate in a traditional day camp experience. Our Integration Specialist works directly with families who are interested in exploring the possibility of Camp Finberg for their children with special needs. If the specialist and family agree that the program is a good fit for the child, the Integration Specialist provides ongoing hands-on training to the staff, establishes the necessary accommodations and supports for the child to be successful in the camp environment. There is no additional cost beyond the camp fee for a child to participate in the Integrated Camp Program.

If you have a child you believe might benefit from the Integrated Camp Program, please contact Integration Specialist Elisabeth Beane at ebeane@attleboroymca.org to schedule a meeting.


Skills to Camp Program

Participants will learn how to clear camp trail paths, clean up camp sites, help with life skills at the pool, make camp fires safely, and help facilitate and maintain the camp store. While learning these essential life skills, participants will then have choices for free time to participate in their favorite camp activities. Swimming, ropes course, archery, arts and crafts along with other opportunities for fun will be included. To learn more and to determine if this program is right for your child, please contact our Integration Specialist Elisabeth Beane at ebeane@attleboroymca.org.
