Camp L.E.A.P. is staffed by local professionals willing to commit one week each summer to create lifelong memories for very special children. Certified teachers, therapists and adults from many walks of life participate in camp. In addition, during camp week each camper is paired with a young adult mentor. The mentor serves as a role model, supervisor and friend. As campers participate in a daily social lesson, creative art, recreation, music, special activity and community contribution class the mentor remains with the camper to help enhance the overall experience.
Camp L.E.A.P. was founded in 2006 to serve the increasing number of children with special needs in our community.
Our goal is to provide a fun educational experience for children with special needs.
Camp L.E.A.P. is a private non-profit organization with one purpose—we want all children to have an appropriate fun summer experience. We rely on the generosity of many businesses, clubs and private individuals to support this endeavor.
