Camp Amicus is a unique summer camp program designed specifically for children and youth with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD. Our goal is to create a rewarding and successful summer camp for each child/youth. We provide a structured and supportive environment for children to learn social skills, build relationships and have fun! Mature, caring counsellors plan activities to ensure that campers build confidence and self-esteem while enjoying a true camp experience. We offer both overnight and day camp options.
