New for the summer of 2013 - Camp Shriver at Stonehill College!
Camp Shriver at Stonehill College featured in the Boston Globe!
This summer, Camp Shriver has an exciting new opportunity for families in Brockton and the surrounding communities.
In 2013 , Camp Shriver will be hosted at two sites: UMass Boston and Stonehill College. Programming will remain the same at both sites, but now Brockton area campers will have a shorter transportation time and be able to take advantage of the beautiful Stonehill College campus.
Camp Shriver at Stonehill College will continue to be a fully inclusive sports day camp for children with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities, based on the model of inclusion developed by the Center for Social Development and Education at UMass Boston. Campers will receive instruction in a variety of sports, including soccer, basketball and swimming, as well as participate in field trips. Learn more about what Camp Shriver offers here. Those interested in being a counselor at Camp Shriver at Stonehill College, can download an application here.
We are inviting Brockton area campers ages 8-12 who will be entering Grades 3-6 in the Fall of 2013 in both regular and special education classes to apply to Camp Shriver at Stonehill College.
Applications closed April 15th. Although the lottery gives preference to applications are complete and on-time, due to the nature of Camp Shriver's inclusive model and commitment to maintain a balance of age, gender and IEP status, occasionally, after the initial lottery, open slots for a particular age, gender and IEP status may remain.

Our campers are boys and girls ages 8-12 who attend school in Boston, Brockton, 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.
