Summer Day Camp
M-NASR provides a variety of camps for children and teens with special needs. Through Connecting And Making Progress, campers’ strengths and abilities shine while participating in activities such as games, sports, arts & crafts, drama, nature, science, swimming, and field trips. Therapeutic Recreation provides opportunities for your child to have a safe, fun summer, develop friendships, and continue working toward their goals. Our camps are divided based on ages and locations, and a staff ratio of at least 1:3 allows for the best opportunities for success and development. C.A.M.P. details are available in March, with registration opening in April and continuing throughout the summer based on availability. For more information about summer camp at M-NASR, please contact Lauren Ruiz at (847) 966-5522, ext. 3013, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
