Camp Friends Inclusion Program
Our “Camp Friends” Inclusion program is for campers with mild to moderate special needs. In this program, your child is mainstreamed in a camp group enjoying all that camp has to offer. Your child is assigned a Shadow Counselor to assist with all needs and to help your child find success in the program. Generally speaking, it is often difficult to distinguish the Shadow Counselor from the General Counselor as the group is designed to work as a fluid and cohesive group. This program is offered for campers in PreK to grade 6.
To make sure we’re the right fit for your camper, an interview and acceptance into the program are required. For more information, please contact the camp office! This shadow program was made possible in part by support from Anonymous Donors and Greater MetroWest ABLE. Greater MetroWest ABLE is convened by Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest NJ. Camp Deeny Riback is a certified provider of services through PerformCare. JCC MetroWest strives to ensure access and meaningful participation by all members of the community.
