If you are the parent of a child, teen, or young adult with a disability in the Naperville area and are looking for options for summer camps, read on. Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA) can help you choose the best camp for your child, whether it’s a camp offered through the Naperville Park District, a WDSRA/School District Co-Op Camp, or a WDSRA Camp.
WDSRA offers inclusion services for those with special needs that participate in Naperville Park District programs – including their vast selection of summer camps. Inclusion services are provided at no cost to the participants’ families, who pay only the cost of the Park District program. (Note that this service should be requested at least two weeks prior to the start of the program). Visit www.napervilleparks.org.
Another very popular option includes WDSRA “Co-Op Camps.” In these, WDSRA partners with School Districts 33, 200, 203 and 204 to provide student/campers with a full camp experience. Students attend morning summer school through their school district and spend the afternoon involved in fun activities that promote friendship and healthy development. Transportation is provided by the school district.
WDSRA offers summer camps for individuals with special needs ages 5 to 21. These camps function at a 1:4 ratio, meet in Wheaton, and run Monday through Friday from 9AM-3PM.
