I recently saw a great article on ejewishphilanthropy.com about Ramah's Tikvah program for special needs youth and young adults."The Tikvah program, established at Camp Ramah New England in 1970, and now active throughout Ramah's national network of overnight camps, offers developmentally and intellectually challenged youth a full, integrated Ramah Jewish summer camp experience."
Tikvah is one of several summer camps that offer opportunities for children and adults with Developmental Disabilities to experience the joy of summer camp. Our JF&CS Disabilities Resource Network can help your family find programs and services within the community that are accessible and offer opportunities for the fullest level of participation possible.
