Creating a summer camp program that supports the success of campers with special needs, while not compromising the overall experience for mainstreamed children, can be a difficult and emotional tightrope to walk. Strategies and Pitfalls: Partnering With Families and Campers With Special Needs explores the ways in which camps can deepen the relationship with their entire camper and family community, including campers with special needs. In this regard, the DVD details best practices and creative solutions that can effectively address the issue-from the initial enrollment conversation through post-camp evaluation.

Among the topics covered:

• What person brought you here today?
• What is your camp's philosophy regarding campers or staff with special needs?
• Do your policies and your philosophy complement or complicate one another?
• Listening and language
• Systems for success
• Finding the right “fit”
