What are inclusive summer camps?
The camps with functional diversity are aimed at children and young people with physical or mental disability. In them, they will find the necessary support for a fun and entertaining vacation. In these camps, we find expert monitors in their care.
In these camps, children do activities tailored to their needs. In addition, they will be able to acquire a certain autonomy that they do not find, in many cases, when interacting only with the family and their acquaintances.
In addition to those specialized and exclusive for children with functional diversity, many entities are beginning to promote those of inclusion, in which children with disabilities coexist with children without; learning, thus, that the differences between peers do not matter when it comes to spending an unforgettable summer.
How to choose an inclusive camp?
Before choosing a camp, you should consider several aspects.

Finally, before choosing a camp, you should contact the organizers and ask all your questions. Find out about the activities that will take place and how they can benefit your child.

What should we consider when choosing a summer camp?
It is not about "parking" them somewhere, but rather, that the children have a great educational, personal and social growth experience.
When choosing a summer camp for our children, especially if it is the first time, we are faced with many doubts, alternatives and modalities.
It is very important that the child wants to attend summer camp voluntarily. In most cases, it is not a good idea to impose the decision.
Also, it is much better that the choice and decision of the camp is made between both parties, and in a consensual manner.
