New York Autism Camps and Programs
Frost Valley campers live in a special world where they experience journeys on every scale - from spending their first night away from home & bonding with new friends to bolder quests like mountain hikes. Our roots reach back to 1901, when we established one of the nation's first overnight camps for children. Over a century later, we remain true to the Y mission & our non-profit commitment to bring children of all backgrounds & abilities together in our enriching, life-changing community.
Camp Reece is a sleep-away camp for children with special needs, ages 10 through 16, located at Skidmore College, which provides an ideal setting for our campers.
At Camp Reece, we offer a wide range of activities, each specifically designed to meaningfully engage campers while teaching skills, building confidence, improving self-esteem, encouraging social-emotional growth, and, of course, having fun!
Camp Reece's skilled and caring staff members differentiate instruction and modify activities whenever needed to ensure campers of all levels, abilities and ages can participate fully and successfully. We acknowledge every accomplishment and never miss the opportunity to provide positive feedback and recognition.
Campers learn about themselves and explore the world around them through hands-on activities, such as organic gardening; art classes that include graphic design, outdoor photography, animation and videography; and a sports program that includes tennis, soccer and water sports.
Our weekly, full-day adventures trips in the heart of the Adirondack Park include whitewater rafting, high ropes courses, biking, trips to theme parks and other exciting area attractions.
At Camp Reece, children explore possibilities and stretch the boundaries of what can be achieved, while giving each camper a lifetime of memories of fun with friends that they will carry with them long after summer's end.
