Reform launches special-needs summer programs

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/nation/article/reform_launches_special-needs_summer_programs_20110111

The Union for Reform Judaism has launched two new summer programs for children with special needs. Camp Chazak in Massachusetts, opening this summer, is for middle-school children with communication and social delays. It has recreational and therapeutic programming. Like the Reform movement’s existing programs for autistic teens -- the Mitzvah Corps program at Camp Kutz in Warwick, N.Y., and the Camp Nefesh program at Camp Newman in Santa Rosa, Calif. -- the new camp aims to provide a Jewish experience to youngsters often left out of mainstream opportunities.
