Dynamic opportunities abound at the Alper JCC CAMP TIKVAH, an exceptional camping experience for children with special needs. The programs are specifically designed for children between the ages of 3-8, 9-12 and 13-21.
Camp TIKVAH is designed for campers who have cognitive and/or physical disabilities. All activities are developed with the particular needs of the special child in mind. A stimulating environment with hands-on experiences is created for your child. The program is designed to instill confidence, develop social and life skills, increase attention span and improve fine and gross motor abilities. Campers participate in the general camp, on an individual basis, where appropriate.
The JCC offers an inclusion program for high-functioning special needs campers. Throughout the day, campers will have an advocate to guide them and they will be part of a general camp bunk.
