After nearly 20 summers of providing our Bay Buddies summer enrichment program for students with disabilities, we’ve made the decision to refocus our energies and resources because of changes in the developmental disabilities field as well as our own philosophical belief in community integration.
Moving forward, we want to work with local camp programs and families so that more children with disabilities – even those with significant needs – will be welcomed and accommodated. We also may be able to offer financial assistance so that families with limited financial means can access funds and scholarships to attend camps. We are excited about what the future holds.
Please take a few minutes to complete our Inclusion Survey for Summer Camps to let us know about your inclusion efforts and how The Arc Baltimore could assist with including more children with disabilities at your camp. Thank you!
