The Inclusion Support and Special Needs Program is pleased to offer a variety of support options at a variety of town run summer camps. Families may consider inclusive recreation at camps listed in the Town of West Hartford Summer Camp brochure if children are capable of participation in an inclusive setting with only general assistance provided by the Special Needs Program staff.
Online registration is not available for Beachland Adventures or Beachland Teen. Please call 860-561-8177 to discuss camp options. Those interested in inclusion assistance should contact the Special Needs Coordinator first to discuss appropriate placement, but online registration is available to secure a spot. The arrangement of bus transportation between summer school and the various camp locations is the responsibility of parents. Please contact the Board of Education directly at 860-561-6600 with any questions. Conversations with parents and school personnel are essential to determining how to best meet the child's recreational needs as well as the appropriateness of the placements.
Details on registration dates and deadlines for Beachland Adventures and Beachland Teen will be in the summer camp brochure. Required camp forms can be picked up at the Elmwood Community Center. Register online with RecDesk.
To allow adequate time for staff hiring, staff training and camp planning, all camp discussions and registrations must be complete by the date indicated in the Town of West Hartford Summer Camp brochure. Deadlines for forms will also be in the Summer Camp brochure and children will not be allowed to participate in camp if the forms have not been received and reviewed. No refunds will be given.
