The camps accommodate up to 45 developmentally delayed youth, age 6 – 22. The ratio of children to counselors is 1:1. Camp is held at Camp Arroyo, a 138-acre parkland outside Livermore, equipped with cabins, a dining facility, and activity center.
At Camp Arroyo, ENN offers a wide variety of activities allowing kids with special needs to just be kids. Camp Arroyo was built specifically for children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses and developmental disabilities, to give them the opportunity to have a blast in a fun, untroubled, safe environment, where they feel comfortable, happy, and secure. They’re exposed to new activities, games, and experiences, and usually end up amazing themselves by doing things they had no idea — or dared not imagine — they could do.
Exceptional Needs Network currently provides three overnight camps a year – two summer sessions and one fall session. Each session accommodates 45 campers, ages 6-22. Each camper is paired 1:1 with a qualified counselor.
