Children with learning and developmental disabilities thrive in Camp Tova's small group setting. Making friends and developing a wide variety of creative, social and physical skills are the goals for Tova campers. They participate in a variety of camp activities specially designed to foster each child's emotional, social and physical growth. They swim each day and participate in a variety of sports, arts, nature and other activities. On Fridays, Tova goes on trips to such destinations as the beach, a small zoo, amusement parks, bowling, etc. Counselors and specialists have a background in special education and are committed to providing each child with a positive and rewarding summer experience. Our small (approximately 4:1) camper to staff ratio ensures that each camper receives individualized attention.
