Special Needs - The Scott Arizala Show

Find out each child's unique interest to motivate them to participate in summer camp

I've been lucky enough to always work at camps where kids with special needs have been directly integrated into the cabin group with kids who's need are a bit more traditional.    I think it has added so much to our camp program and the spirit of the place.

I was so grateful to Scott for choosing this topic this week.  He has so many great ideas to share about how to help the campers, work well with their parents and show your staff how to shine in this environment.
