The inclusion model at NJY Camps is unique in the camping world. We have created an environment of OPPORTUNITY and CHOICE. Round Lake campers are able to integrate into all mainstream activities based on their level of comfort and interest. We provide programming specific to Round Lake campers for those who prefer it. Some campers choose to integrate all throughout the day, while other campers choose to join the mainstream programs for certain activities. Campers’ schedules are individualized based on their needs and requests.
Our 7 to 11 year old Round Lake campers reside in dedicated bunks on the Nah-Jee-Wah campus, while our 12 to 18 year olds live in self-contained bunks on the Cedar Lake campus, yet share the day with their typical peers. We share all the facilities and programming with the respective camps. Our campers benefit from the support of a high counselor to camper ratio. In particular, the campers have that strong support during the unstructured parts of the day, for example, during meals, clean up, rest hour, and shower hour.
