A “Peer Buddy” is a role exclusive to the Youth Mini Camp Session.
Peer Buddies are neurotypical children ages 7 through 14. These individuals stay at Camp for the entire Youth Mini-Camp session and work cooperatively with their assigned Junior Counselor to provide a meaningful camp experience for one peer who has special needs and is also in the same age range.
The Peer Buddy must be positive, an enthusiastic role model, and friend to the campers, and have a caring, compassionate heart.
Should you have any questions about the Peer Buddy program, please contact our Camp Director directly.
