My child was lucky enough to get a week at Camp Patterson this summer. This camp, that features regularly abled kids and special needs kids, was such a positive experience for him. He was nervous to attend and, after his week was over, sad to see it end. He learned to ride in a canoe, bowled, danced, did arts and crafts and of course, swam in Silver Lake (life jackets required if swimming cannot be proven). The camp ran Monday through Friday from 10am-3pm and cost $85. It was well worth it. He felt at ease, comfortable with his disabilities and the counselors were encouraging and helpful.
