The Kulam Program
Kulam is an overnight summer camp experience for children aged 9-12 with Autism Spectrum Disorder, children with mild to moderate learning, social and or emotional challenges such as ADHD, receptive and expressive language issues, developmental delays and anxiety. Campers attending Kulam are included in all areas of Camp George community life, including participation in the cabin experience, camp activities, religious activities, meals, etc. Kulam offers low camper-staff ratio, integration into the Camp George mainstream program, support around hygiene, independence and visual supports for campers. Kulam campers live in their own cabin and are supported by experienced staff who provide a structured and nurturing program.
