inclusion programs

Jewish summer camp is a place where values are taught, community is developed, and lifelong friends and memories are made. We believe that each child deserves the opportunity to experience Jewish summer camp. Our Inclusion Program is dedicated to providing a successful summer camp experience for your child.

Whether your child requires limited help or a dedicated advocate, we strive to make the appropriate accommodations in all our camp programs. We work to understand and thoughtfully address each camper’s needs to determine the resources necessary to enable meaningful participation.

For more information please contact Anita Lewis, Inclusion Director at alewis@sabesjcc.org. or (952) 381-3489.

The Summer Inclusion Program is made possible through the generosity of private donors, through directed donations made possible through the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, and through the support of the Toodie and Frank Trestman Special Needs Collaborative Education Endowment Fund, a designated fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation. Availability of resources to accommodate special needs campers is limited. Please consider making a donation to this invaluable, inclusive, Jewish summer camp experience on behalf of those children who require additional support.
