For Children Diagnosed with a Cognitive, Intellectual or Developmental Disorder
Our inclusion program reflects our desire to be inclusive whenever possible and to cater to the needs of each individual child. By adapting the programs offered throughout Camp Twelve Trails, we focus on providing everyone a caring, safe, and engaging environment. To ensure that each child’s needs are properly met, we conduct an intake interview with each camper.
Inclusion program level 1
Campers entering K through entering 2nd grade will have a diversified schedule which will include activities from all 5 neighborhoods: Explore - Outdoor Adventure, Play - Sports and Fitness, Create - Arts and Drama, Discover - Science and Technology, and Grow - Farm to Table.
Campers entering 3rd through entering 6th grade will be able to create their own summer camp experience by choosing which of the 5 neighborhoods they are most interested in for any given week at camp.
All campers who are placed in this level of inclusion will be supported with a 5:1 staffing ratio.

Individualized support plans will be developed during intake meetings through leadership staff assessments in collaboration with families.
