Overnight camp is a natural next step for Keshet campers.
Four-week programs integrated into several host sites in Wisconsin and Michigan begin in mid-July.
Keshet offers two models of supported overnight camp programs.
The first model highly resembles the structure of our integrated day camps.
Keshet offers 1:1 staff to camper ratio with on-site supervision from a special educator. On-site supervision offers necessary support for the host camp staff that has limited experience with the special needs population. The second model serves individuals who do not require the support of 1:1 assistance and Keshet provides consultative services.
The Ruben Family Keshet Overnight Camp at Moshava in Wild Rose, Wisconsin offers campers with special needs the opportunity to participate in a four- week overnight camp.
Extensive preparation with campers, the host site, parents, and staff ensure the enjoyment of Keshet campers.
Campers sleep in cabins, eat meals, and do all camp activities with their peers.
This program runs from mid-July through mid-August.
Keshet also provides clinical consultation for other overnight camp programs wishing to include campers with special needs. Olin-Sang-Ruby Union Institute, BBYO Camp Beber, and the JCC's Camp Chi have joined Keshet in welcoming campers with special needs into their programs.
