Weekend Camps

Camp Aldersgate’s Weekend Camps provide developmentally appropriate opportunities for our campers that promote cognitive, physical, social and emotional growth in a fun, engaging, camp setting. Activity planning for each weekend includes a mix of physical activities, art, outdoor activities and structured and free-play. Weekend Camps are open for each camper to attend a maximum of six times in a school year.

Eligibility

Kota Camps are inclusive camping experiences for campers with and without medical conditions and/or disabilities. These camps are available for children ages 6–18, and we encourage campers to attend with a friend or a sibling.

Weekend Camps serve campers with special needs who fall within the age range of 6–18 and who meet one of the following criteria:

  • Eligible for one of the summer camps (with exception of increased medical needs: respiratory technology, nurse dependent dialysis, diabetes, and mild-to-moderate Asthma diagnosis).
  • Receives special education and “related services” in the school setting to increase academic achievement and functional performance.
  • Requires use of assistive devices and adaptations to complete Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
