SST8 compiles this comprehensive listing of summer camp and activity options with children and adolescents with disabilities in mind, knowing that many families can have difficulty finding summer programming that can accommodate their unique needs. Information about these programs is gathered and compiled by SST8. We reach out annually to these programs to request that they provide any new updates to their offerings, tuition, or website. If you have any questions or identify something that needs updating, please contact Chrissy Wooley at [email protected].Read More ▸
