Welcome to the MSNN Summer Camp Guide!

Choices abound when it comes to summer camp programs for our children with special needs. In this Guide, you will see hundreds of day and residential camps from all over the country: from highly specialized camps to inclusive, traditional ones. While certainly not an exhaustive list, the camps that we have researched and listed have activities geared to the individual campers’ abilities; knowledgeable staff with expertise to understand strengths and challenges, and have fun, supportive atmospheres for our children of all abilities. The available options are endless! You will also read some amazing articles from experts about tips for sending your child to camp, food allergies, finding funding for camps, and so much more.

As we move forward into spring, many application deadlines for summer camps are approaching…and camps tend to fill up fast. Now is the perfect time to research your options and discover opportunities for your child during the summer. We hope our MSNN Summer Camp Guide will help you choose a program that will introduce your child to positive, new experiences that will enhance their learning and provide opportunities for exploration and discovery.

I want to thank our amazing volunteer Contributors for their incredible work. Their tireless commitment to helping military families amazes me every day. Kelly, Miranda, Jessica, and Sam, – what an extraordinary team you are! I am so grateful for each one of you.

From all of us here at MSNN, we wish your family a summer filled with fun and adventure!
