Camp Joy is a full-day summer camp for students of Special Education with mild to moderate intellectual developmental disabilities. Camp Joy offers a traditional summer camp experience. By providing enhanced support, every camper is given a forum in which to showcase his/her ABILITY in the safest yet least restrictive environment deemed developmentally appropriate.


Emphasis is placed on physical enrichment through game, swimming and fitness but also on cultural enrichment through art, community activities, dance, music, theater, games, and nature and nutrition projects.

Breakfast and lunch are available through the Summer Youth Nutrition Program. Door-to-door transportation is available in New Rochelle.


Full 6 weeks. Total fee is $300. A deposit of $100 is due upon registration. Your down payment will be held until you are notified by mail of acceptance. Camp balance will be due by June 9, 2017.
