Special Needs Camps
Amici works with several partner camps who are dedicated to serving children with special needs, including Camp Awakening, Camp Kennebec, Camp Kirk and Camp Winston. It is beyond the scope of our program to assess the unique needs of these campers on an intake basis. For this reason, we have a different application process for families with campers with special needs:
- First, apply directly to the Partner Camp: Apply to the Amici partner camp whose program you feel best meets your child’s unique needs. Let the camp know that you plan to apply for Amici funding. The partner camp will conduct an initial screening of each new applicant according to their typical application process. The camp will assess your child’s medical and developmental needs to determine if their camp is a suitable environment for your child.
- Partner Camp provides a referral to Amici: Once a child is approved by the camp, the family will be referred to Amici to apply for funding. Amici will then conduct a financial analysis and complete reference checks according to our typical application process.
Please note that we are not able to review funding applications for campers with special needs without an accompanying referral from a partner camp. Many of Amici’s partner camps provide mild support for campers with special needs.
