Our mission:

The Program

Camp Nuhop is a residential summer camp for children with special needs.

Over 20 unique programs are offered through six, one week -long sessions. Children are placed in a "tribe" of seven campers based on program choice, age, application information and a teacher evaluation.

Three staff members are assigned to each tribe of seven campers for the entire week. Activities at camp might include: hiking, canoeing, swimming and camping out under the stars, as well as cooperative and individual self-concept initiatives.

Returning campers look forward to new adventure and friends each year while first time campers and parents are often anxious about a new experience. For these new families, we require attendance at our Conference Day where children and parents get to know Nuhop Staff and other new campers.

What makes Nuhop Special?

* Staff are certified educators and/or college students majoring in child-related majors.

* Self-concept activities are used to help each child deal with abilities and disabilities.

* Staff use proactive behavior management techniques to improve behavior issues.

* Parents are involved through pre-camp conferences, award picnics and post -camp activities.

* Maximum camper/staff ratio is 3.5/1.

A Highly Qualified Staff

We select staff for those qualities of maturity, sensitivity and caring that allow them to relate well with young people.


We rotate our 2 week trip camps each year. We do travel to the Rocky Mountains, Grand Canyon, Bar Harbor Maine, and some of our one week trips may take you to Lake Erie, the Ohio Parks, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania
