Special Needs Camps

Camp Kadima

Admission Process: Each child who submits an application to Camp Kadima must have an interview. Applications are dated and time-stamped as space in the camps is very limited.

INCLUSION AT JCCNV SUMMER CAMPS: We support the inclusion of all children in camp. We follow the model that all people deserve to be included in society, no matter one’s physical, social, or emotional needs. Camp is a place to learn, grow, and have fun! We encourage everybody to experience camp sometime in their lives. If your child needs additional support to successfully participate in Camp Achva, for an additional fee we can arrange for an Inclusion Support Specialist that would be a good fit for your child. We look forward to supporting you and your child in a successful and fun-filled summer! Need accommodations? No problem. Accommodation requests and registration must be submitted by June 13. Please contact Jessica Tischler, Special Needs Director, at Jessica.Tischler@jccnv.org or 703.537.3031.
