Continue learning through the summer with MDE School Special Needs Summer Camps.

MDE School’s Special Needs Summer Camps are geared toward children with developmental disabilities, including autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and communication disorders.

Our special needs summer camps provide hands-on activities and experiences to help your child develop social and academic skills that will benefit them when school resumes in the fall. Each week of camp will reinforce academic, social, language, sensory, fine, and gross motor skills. Neuro-divergent campers will also enjoy fun outdoor activities and arts and crafts.
