A Special Day For Special Kids at West Hills Day Camp on July 30, 2011

As summer approaches I have spent more and more time looking for fun activities and events near NYC for James, and last night I stumbled across this one – it looks promising.

Below is a description of the event as well as a map of the grounds, taken from the site http://www.specialdayforspecialkids.com:

The 7th Annual Special Day for Special Kids (SD4SK), being held on Saturday July 30, 2011 at West Hills Day Camp, is excited to bring you a Summer Festival like no other. SD4SK is dedicated to children with special needs, a place where children of all ages, with autism spectrum disorder, Asperger syndrome, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, OCD, and other related neurobiological disorders, can feel comfortable enough to let go and just have fun in a safe environment. While these Special Kids are enjoying the many activities being offered, we will be bringing information and resources to parents and professionals in the field. Years prior, we have welcomed over 500 patrons to this event, and this year, we expect even more. 


The site has many more details about the big day including a list of expert presentations – some of the experts will speak about life care planning, ABA therapy, motor speech disorders, due process rights at school and government benefits.  The stage schedule varies from reptile shows to dance performances. Ticket prices are very reasonable, and even less $$ if you buy them online.

    Looks like a great place but I don’t see any 2011 info on their site – except tix for sale. We’ll have to miss it as we’ll be enroute to our vacation on cape cod.

      I know – I emailed them about that and Dennis replied with the following: “We are working on the final details of the program now….we wanted to keep up 2010 schedule so people got a sense of what we will have….will get you updated info within a few weeks”

      I’ll update the post as I get more info!
