Special Needs Camp

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

INCLUSION AT KADIMA: 

We support the inclusion of all children in camp, regardless of one’s physical, social or emotional needs. Camp is a place to learn, grow and have fun! If your child needs additional support to ensure a successful summer in J Camps, we can arrange for an Inclusion Support Staff (Shadow) at an additional cost. Priority will be given to campers who register by May 9 for either the full summer or 4-week session.  We look forward to supporting you and your child for a successful and fun-filled summer!

Please contact Arlene Lechner,  or 703.537.3032, to arrange for an Inclusion Support Staff or for any other accommodations.


Kadima 2019

Kadima is a recreational social skills camp for children with High Functioning Autism.

Kadima’s mission is to improve social and emotional skills in a safe and nurturing environment. The camp is designed to provide opportunities to build self-esteem, social competence, independence skills, self-awareness and to foster positive relationships. Campers learn and grow dynamically as the camp is designed for social success in an inclusive environment.

Parent meetings provide the opportunity to receive feedback on their children as well as a forum for questions and building camaraderie with other Kadima families.

The camp day includes social skills lessons in conjunction with general camp activities such as swim, sports, arts and crafts, music, all-camp activities and much more! Both groups go on a field trip once a week, and rising 4th - 6th graders will go on a overnight trip each session to Camps Airy and Louise!

Social Skills curriculum includes but is not limited to:

Team-building and teamwork ● Winning/losing ● Flexibility ● Impulse control ● Coping strategies ● Anger management ● Friendship building ● Conversation skills ● Personal awareness

Admission Process: Each new child who submits an application to Kadima must have an interview. Applications are dated and time-stamped. Space is limited!

*A 5% discount will be applied to campers attending all 8 weeks of Kadima

Tikvah (Hope)


Tikvah is a fun, activity-based camp designed to keep teens busy throughout the summer while offering a variety of traditional and skill-based activities in a supportive environment. Rising 7th–10th graders with ID/DD will have the opportunity to experience Camp Achva both inside and outside of the building with activities ranging from free swim, cooking, and archery to an array of field trips. We will be out and about in the community multiple days during the week taking fun outings that may include classic camp trips, community service projects, working together on team building skills, and much more! Although the main goal of this camp is to kick back and enjoy summer, we will naturally be working on social skills development, life skills, and self-awareness.
