Camp Adler

Our goal is to create a fun, nurturing and supportive environment with typical day camp activities, both in-building at the MIYJCC and at our Offsite Camp, where campers are assisted by our professional staff to develop skills, build self-confidence and make lasting friendships.

  • Full Inclusion or Shared Camp placement  options determined by Director and Parent
  • Camp placement based on social, emotional and cognitive abilities
  • Specialized counselors trained by qualified staff, including special education teachers
  • Low child-to-counselor ratio
  • Consultations with related service providers
  • Camp activities include sports, rock wall and zip line, day trips, music, art, nature hikes and more
  • Special education swim instruction led by Red Cross certified instructors
  • Daily lunch is nutritious, kid-friendly, kosher, peanut/tree nut-free and includes pizza Fridays
  • An intake will be scheduled prior to registration to ensure the best fit between campers and programs
