What Makes Our Special Needs Summer Camp Unique?

What We Do at Our Special Needs Summer Camps:

Talisman’s special needs summer camp offers a wide variety of programs for ages 6 – 22.  Our goal is to provide every camper with a traditional camp experience, along with an environment that allows them to grow as individuals.  Our Campers include individuals with an autism spectrum disorder, ADHD and other learning disabilities.

At Talisman, we strive to create an atmosphere that builds positive peer relationships and allows our campers to be themselves. We embrace the quirkiness of each of our campers and encourage our campers to do the same. As a special needs summer camp, social skill development is one area on that we focus heavily with our campers. More than 40 years of experience has allowed us to develop and refine effective ways of teaching these skills, so that our campers can take these valuable lessons and use them throughout their lives.

We have designed every element of our special needs summer camp to provide a safe, structured, and exceptional camp experience for children, teens and young adults. We believe that everyone should have the chance to get the full camp experience. Camp is a time for friendship-building, life lessons and being yourself, and at Talisman we are dedicated to making sure each of our campers is given that experience. With decades of know-how and a passionate staff, Talisman has continually provided a summer full of memories and personal growth for all of our campers.
