CAMP RUNAMUK

What to Expect at Camp Runamuk

Camp Runamuk is a camp for families who have children with special needs. At Camp Runamuk, families get the total camp experience from bunk beds to campfires for 4 days and 3 nights, while they participate in family and individual activities geared for campers with special needs, their siblings and their parents. At night, a variety of lodging options are available to meet each family’s budgetary needs, from individual lodge rooms with their own bedroom and shower, to shared cabin space with another family.

All aspects of the camp are specifically tailored to the individual needs of each family member attending so that no one is left out of any part of camp! We take into account any special diets, medications, physical limitations and much more to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy each aspect of camp to the fullest!

Camp Runamuk is run by staff experienced in working with children with special needs. Camp Pals are assigned to each camper with special needs.

Your child’s Camp Pal will become acquainted with your child’s specific needs, medical requirements and interests in order to help your child have the best possible experience.

Never been camping before with your special needs child? No need to worry! We’ll assist you through the whole process.
