Camp Huntington is a co-ed, residential, nine-week program for children and young adults with a variety of special needs. Our program is designed to maximize a child's potential and develop their strengths and hidden abilities. We offer a unique program approach we've developed: Adaptive Therapeutic Recreation. Your child will enjoy the fun-filled days of summer camp while learning practical life skills. All our activities are instructional in nature. Our activities are designed to stimulate a child's awareness and interest in their environment and in relationships, while building their confidence, self-esteem and growth towards independence.
Children and young adults with: Learning and Developmental Disabilities, Attention Deficit and Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorders (ADD/ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders, Asperger's Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disabilities (PDD), and other special needs. Our campus is located in the beautiful hamlet of High Falls, New York within the Catskill Mountain region.
Single-Rate-Inclusive tuition starts at $2,195 per week (includes many extras such as off camp trips, emergency laundry, daily canteen snacks, trip snacks). There are extra charges for the following: extra supervision of 1:2 or 1:1 to address behavioral or physical support needs; (our base tuition includes a 1:3 supervision ratio); and for medication administration for prescription medications or any supplements; and for additional activities such as PT, OT or SLP, which all require a doctor’s prescription in order for us to deliver.
Discounts are offered for early enrollment and payment and for longer stays for campers attending for 3, 6 or 9 weeks whose balances are fully paid by May 1st. We offer an additional 5% discount for tuitions paid in full by December 18th; a 5% sibling discount is also available. To maintain any applicable discount, you need to follow our payment schedule specified in the camper application (35% by January 15th, 35% by March 15th and the remaining 30% balance by May 1st). Accounts with unpaid balances after May 1st will have discounts removed. Discounts are only available until May 1st. Registrations after May 1st do not have any discount offers. If you rely on 3rd party funding, discounts do not apply unless you pay privately according to our payment schedule, and we will reimburse you when your 3rd-party payment is received.
Scholarship applications can only be submitted AFTER you receive admissions acceptance notification from us. At that time, you can download the Tuition Scholarship application for a request to our sister non-profit, the High Falls Center for DD (HFC). We recommend rallying your network to donate to the HFCDD. Try fundraising on popular crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter, Fundly, GoFundMe, and more. In general, our scholarship fund only offers families minor potential funding options based on donations received for the current camp season.
Some years we receive little to no donations, so this is not a reliable method, and therefore, we strongly suggest you engage early to contact your network and hold any events you can to raise funding yourself.
