Description

Round Lake is a unique inclusion model at NJY Camps designed for children with diverse needs between the ages of 7-17. The program is built upon a philosophy of opportunity and choice for all campers. At NJY Camps, the approach to inclusion ensures that campers who are part of the Round Lake program are fully integrated into the camp experiences at Camp Nah-Jee-Wah and Cedar Lake Camp. Campers enjoy everything that a traditional sleep away camp experience has to offer, while benefiting from additional support.

To this end, campers are simply Nah-Jee-Wah and Cedar Lake campers, and are a part of the Round Lake program, in which staffing and housing are structured to meet their needs.

Campers come from both private and public educational environments in which they have been a part of resource programs, self-contained classrooms, and general education settings. Acceptance is contingent upon interviews and supportive materials which are consistent with camp’s philosophy. Professionals are available to provide speech therapy and occupational therapy as per campers’ Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) at no extra cost. Tutors offer academic enrichment in both individual and group settings and our mental health professional is also on site to provide support to our campers and staff. Round Lake staff offer the compassion, patience, and personal touch that help make camp a profound experience on multiple levels.

7 to 11 year old Round Lake campers reside in dedicated bunks at Camp Nah-Jee-Wah, while campers 12 years and older live in dedicated bunks at Cedar Lake Camp. Campers benefit from the support of a high counselor to camper ratio. In particular, the campers have scaffolding during the unstructured parts of the day, for example, during meals, clean up, rest hour, and shower hour. In addition, staff utilize visual aides, such as schedules and calendars, to provide the predictability and routine our campers seek.
