|Recreation and Parks has been offering specialized therapeutic summer camps for children for over 30 years. The combination of our dedicated, qualified and professional staff and innovated and specialized programs gives our campers a summer filled with fun activities the development of positive peer friendships and a continuation of therapeutic learning experiences.
Both camps are approved respite care providers and have full time nursing staff on duty, allowing for medication disbursement, non-delegated nursing duties and emergency care on the spot. A breakfast and lunch program sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education Summer Food Service Program is also offered. Many children schedule their SMCPS approved extended school years services and/or specialized coordinated services to be conducted at camp.
