Yachad/NJCD provides unique and inclusive sleepaway camp programs. Our participants are fully integrated into a mainstream bunk with their typically developing peers. With the support of a Yachad-trained counselor, our participants participate in all activities with their peers. The Yachad-trained counselor follows a fade-in, fade-out model, where they step in when they are needed to help facilitate meaningful socialization and inclusion, and fade-out when our campers are participating meaningfully in activities and programs.
Yachad sleepaway camp is for children ages 9-16.
The staff and campers in Dror are warm and accepting of our Yachad program. It was very positive for every camper and staff member during the pilot 2018 summer. We are very excited for yet another summer in Camp Dror!
