Summer is a time for fun and friendship. By integrating Keshet children into neighborhood camps, new opportunities are created for acceptance and understanding.
Keshet's Overnight Camps are frequently a first experience away from home, helping campers prepare for independence.
The Summer Camp Programs serve children and teens age 3 to 21 with developmental disabilities and participants are included in the mainstream of existing summer camps in the Chicago area, surrounding suburbs, Wisconsin and Michigan.
Keshet families can attend one of fourteen camps to best suit their child's interests.
These state-of-the-art programs offer a well-rounded functional summer with the emphasis on maintenance of goals achieved throughout the school year.
Age appropriate social skills are a priority of the program and campers receive maximum opportunities for social interaction while gaining skills which will increase their autonomy within their community.
Additional outside services that uphold each child's Individual Educational Plan are incorporated into the camp day activities including physical, occupational, vision and speech therapy, social work, nurse and consulting school psychologist.
