About our camp

Designed for children with special needs, Camp Lee Mar offers a 7-week residential summer program. It was founded in 1953 and managed to introduce innovations in the field of camping. Kids and teens, aged 7-21, are eligible for Lee Mar if they face the following learning and developmental challenges: Down Syndrome, Williams Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Fragile X, and others.

The camp is located in the Pocono Mountains Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania. It a two-hour drive away from New York City. The staff does its best to not only ensure a fun and happy summertime for children, but also improve their social, interpersonal and learning skills. All the activities are picked having these main goals in mind.

Although campers are grouped by age in their cabins, the staff also takes into account the abilities of an individual camper to make sure the group dynamics is not affected and the effective atmosphere is created to enhance each camper’s personal growth.

Camp programs & activities

Usual camp activities are combined with academic and speech programs to make up a helpful and effective curriculum.

Lee Mar offers the following main categories of activities: traditional camp activities and adventures, academic program, speech and language therapy, therapeutic horseback riding, overnight trips, vocational training, Special Olympics Program, and Senior Prom.

Equally important is the transition L.I.F.E. Program (Living Independently Functional Education) which offers job training and independent living skills to the veteran campers aged 18 and above.
