About the Kid-to-Camp Program

The Special Education Foundation understands that bridging the instructional gap during breaks in the school year is critical. SEF’s Kid-to-Camp program provides financial assistance to parents of children served by the Special School District so they can attend camp during these breaks in the school year.

Area camp programs help to maintain the momentum and benefits to students beyond the social and educational aspects of the classroom. Attending camp provides opportunities to interact with others, develop friendships, and build relationships that can increase confidence and independence.

While the additional expense can be a financial burden for many families, SEF picks up in areas not supported by tax dollars or United Way. Campership funds are awarded based on financial need and student benefit and many are funded through our annual golf tournament. Applications are accepted year-round. Visit our main applications page to learn more about eligibility requirements and to submit an application.

From the Newsroom

SEF is committed to helping to bridge the academic gap by providing financial support and encouragement for children served by the Special School District with our Kid-to-Camp program.

The Special Education Foundation's Kid-to-Camp program is designed to help more kids with disabilities to attend area camps during spring, summer and winter breaks in the school year.

SEF has an incredible opportunity to sponsor students to embark on an exciting journey that will hone leadership skills and immerse them in the world of governmental policy.
