It’s designed to create a sense of community among all participants and help Yachad campers develop feelings of belonging and independence. What do we do in Yachad? • Provide a fun camp experience modified to the camper’s needs. • Provide additional trained support staff. • Improve social interactions and social skills among peers, and facilitate friendships. • Make accommodations as necessary by altering teaching methods without lowering standards. There will be no additional cost to enroll your child in Camp Romano’s Yachad Program provided our grant funding is renewed again this year. Is Yachad right for my child? Because individual needs vary, the first step is to see if our Yachad Program is a good fit for your child. Please contact Amy Bisnett, inclusion specialist, at 315-445-2040, ext. 122. Space is limited, so don’t delay! Overnight Fun 4 JCC of Syracuse | 2018 Summer Camp Guide What you need to know...
