Best Practices for Inclusive Camps is written by practitioners for practitioners. It provides a distinctively practical take on the inclusion of youth with and without disabilities at camp, based on the newly developed “Standards for Inclusive Recreation Programs.” Part I of the book (Creating an Inclusive Camp) addresses best practices in various aspects of camp, while Part II (Exemplary Inclusive Camps) is a series of case studies about inclusive camps that represent both day and overnight programs across a range of organizational affiliations and geographical locations. Appendices include a self-reflection questionnaire for your camp based on the standards, and a collection of staff training activities specifically designed for promoting inclusion. Wherever you are on your inclusion journey, this book will help you take the next step in your program so that children with and without disabilities can experience the joys of camp—together.
