Week long and weekend camps held at Howell Nature Center where campers test their skills for living independently. Campers enjoy nature, traditional camp activities while learning cooking, communication and self-advocacy.
Campers will have opportunities to work with the animals at the Howell Nature Center.
At Camp Zip we train our staff to be comfortable with a wide variety of disabilities and communication styles. We prepare hard to make sure each camper has an amazing experience.
We DO expect campers to be independent with toileting.We can offer verbal and visual prompts to use the bathroom, but we do not train our staff to help with wiping or change diapers. Campers who are routinely aggressive or engage in frequent, dangerous behavior (such as running away or eating non-food items) may not be a good fit for our program. Our lengthy application asks for tons of information about your camper, so that our counselors can help him or her to be successful at camp. If you have questions, we are happy to discuss your camper in more detail before you apply.
