Summer camps for people with special needs provide a haven for campers and their families to take a break from their daily routine.

The role of a Special Needs counselor is invariably challenging and requires hard work, but it will also be the most rewarding and fulfilling summer of your life!

For most campers, the time spent at summer camp is the highlight of their year, and for those with Special Needs this is no different. Summer camps for people with special needs provide a haven for campers and their families to take a break from their daily routine. 

Camps, which cater for persons with special needs, require both general and activity counselors. The camper to counselor ratio is usually 1:1 or 2:1. You may work closely with one particular camper or a small group of campers each session. Counselors will be required to assist campers in day-to-day activities and/or lead activities at camp. 

Previous experience is great, but not required. Mot importsntly, you need and open mind and a passion for caring for peopele. All camps for persons with special needs will provide a one to two week training session prior to the arrival of the campers. 

Working at a summer camp will, without doubt, be the most rewarding, challenging and unforgettable job you'll ever have. You'll work hard and you'll do so in amazing surroundings, having great fun making enough new friends to last a lifetime AND it will look great on your CV!
