    Camp Shriver Campers are…

    Our campers are boys and girls, ages 8-12, who live in Boston and Quincy, MA.

    Our campers with disabilities are currently receiving special education services in public schools and have mild intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Our campers without disabilities are not receiving special education services in school. They are the same ages as our campers with disabilities and come from the same school systems.

    Camp Shriver treats all of our campers as equal-status campers. Campers with and without disabilities are grouped together in teams (i.e., a team of 10 will include 5 campers with a disability and 5 campers without a disability) and participate in all activities together.

    Camp Shriver has guidelines that reflect the type of facilities we have and our ability to accommodate children within a range of challenges. At this time, for example, we are unable to accommodate a child who is not mobile, who is visually impaired, or requires a one-to-one aid. Camp Shriver’s admission committee assesses whether a child’s needs can be met by our facilities, staff, etc. Admission by lottery proceeds after these guidelines have been met. For more information about the Camp Shriver admission process, please contact Regine Paul at 617.287.7251 or regine.paul@umb.edu.
