Camp Firefly

A Home Away From Home

We understand that many children with special needs have never been away from home. Located at award-winning Camp Chi, in Lake Delton Wisconsin, our safe and trusted overnight camp provides the support and attention that new campers need to adjust to an unknown environment, adapt to cabin life, and make new friends. In partnership with Jewish Child & Family Services, Camp Firefly offers a 10-day camp experience for children with the following diagnoses:

  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Non-Verbal Learning Disorder
  • High-Functioning Autism

 

Comfortable, Fun, and Memorable

Camp Firefly is specifically designed for children who need more support in social situations to foster friendships and positive social interaction in a safe, supportive atmosphere. Daily schedules include therapeutic group activities with smooth transitions and appropriate time for breaks. Campers live in small cabin groups and receive support from counselors trained in social communication disorders to ensure their experience is comfortable, fun and memorable.
