As a traditional day camp, Camp Sewataro does not specialize in serving campers with special needs, including learning disabilities, physical disabilities, trauma histories, and/or social-emotional challenges. However, we strongly believe in the value of inclusion, and are happy to make any accommodations that we can reasonably support, on a case-by-case basis. We ask that you please share as much information as possible about your child so that we can ensure that Sewataro is a good fit. Helpful information might include a school IEP or 504 plan, reports from a psychologist, psychiatrist, and/or speech, occupational, physical, and behavioral therapists. These reports and plans are highly confidential and will only be shared with the leadership team. The more we know, the better prepared we will be to make camp a successful experience for your child. Please contact Amy at (978) 443-3100 or if your child receives any accommodations, supports, or services (private or in-school) during the school year or if you have any questions or concerns about Camp Sewataro’s fit for your child, prior to submitting an online application.
