Welcome to Special Services…
Our day camp specializes in serving children who have developmental disabilities 5-21 years old. Younger campers enjoy our center-based Childhood Program, located at the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck, where they swim, play in the gym, cook, dance, as well as share arts and crafts activities and music. Community-based field trips highlight the summer experience.
Older campers are offered the adventure of a full day camping experience at the Henry Kaufmann Campgrounds through our Campsite Program. Activities include swimming, nature fun, an overnight at the Samuel Field Y in Little Neck, community field trips, as well as a wide variety of specialty activities, such as drama, music, sports, and arts and crafts. The 350-acre campgrounds enables us to provide an outdoor experience emphasizing maximum growth.
Transportation for both programs is available from selected areas of Queens. Program eligibility is determined by an interview and screening process.
