Summer Camp & Shore Program

Helping Hands, Inc. is offering our summer residential/vacation camp for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

ALL WEEKS WILL BE BASED at the property in Rio Grande, New Jersey. Contrary to all previous summers, we will not be having designated CAMP weeks. All weeks will be Shore weeks with some camp activities sprinkled in. (i.e music and art activities during down-time). We have noticed a decrease in our individual’s interest in camp weeks and an increase in desire to be out in the community doing our usual Shore week activities. Cost is $1300.00/week.
