Super Special Sundays
Marvin’s Camp is a unique recreational summer program customized for those ages 6 – 21 with special needs as well as those who are non-ambulatory. After six weeks of dance classes, swimming, social skills and field trips, the children show off their skills in a dance performance for their families and relive the summer through a picture slide show. With a wide array of both social and developmental activities, children are engaged by professionally supported trained staff to create some of the best memories of their summer.
