Camp Migdal is continuing the legacy of Camp Mishkon, which served children with special needs for more than 25 years. The seven week program includes a fully encompassing educational program as well as SLP, OT, PT and Aqua Therapy. The atmosphere in Camp Migdal is filled with joy and a great spirit exuded from the incredibly devoted staff. The campers are constantly encouraged and they feel the unconditional love which further enables their social, educational and overall growth and development.
Camp Mizmor, evolved in 2017 from the overwhelming need of a place that provides a structured summer program for individuals with special needs. The seven week program includes a fully encompassing educational program as well as vocational training, SLP, OT, PT, Equine and Aqua Therapy. It’s the ultimate adventure in a wilderness environment where individuals experience social and educational growth while improving their daily life skills.
CAMP AFTER CAMP
During the interval between the end of camp and school, families are busy getting their children ready for the new school year. The extra attention required by the child with special needs is stressful for parents, and for siblings who may need more of their parents’ focus at this time. The Camp After Camp Program makes a significant difference to the families and eases the transition home for the children.
