Camp Kehilla, a pioneer in special needs camping for more than 20 years, has continued to initiate new opportunities and experiences for special needs campers. The program features myriad activities tailored to youth and young adults with a variety of special needs, and focuses on building social skills, lasting friendships and self-esteem among special needs campers.

“We couldn’t be more proud of the children on the committee,” said Debra Wiener, director of Development. “Through their commitment and hard work they helped raise more than $4,000 for the Camp Kehilla Scholarship Fund which will help give a child with special needs the summer of a lifetime.”
