There really is nothing quite like summer camp.  Although fresh lake swimming and archery and long hikes through cathedrals of trees strike vivid memories, you can ask almost anyone who has attended a summer camp what their number one memory was and more likely than not they will talk about the people...the connections built around the laughter at a campfire or the whispered chatter of bedtime.  For children with special needs, summer camps are the perfect time to make connections with peers who share the same highs and lows of their everyday walk.  Summer camps specific to a special need can also provide much needed respite for care givers.
