Tampa Area: Special Needs Friendly Summer Camps & Programs

Summer is a great time for children of all abilities to explore new and exciting adventures. Parents with children with special needs are looking for day, week and resident camps. We have compiled a great list of Summer Camps that offers accommodations for children on the Autism spectrum, ADHD, downs syndrome, handicap, cerebral palsy and more.

***This is NOT an all inclusive list. ***

Many Tampa Bay area Summer camps can make accommodations for children with different abilities if they know ahead of time. Please do not hesitate to call any camp to inquire more details. Some camps are unable to make accommodations due to space, staffing or training. If we find more camps, we will add them to our website.


What is Special Needs Friendly? Special needs include individuals with learning, emotional, behavioral, or physical disabilities.The locations listed below have made accommodations in the past or are willing to make accommodations. However, they may not be able to make accommodations for every child due to space, staffing or training.
Camps listed in this guide does NOT imply endorsement of any program, product or services. This guide is provided for reference purposes only. Parents should research any summer program or activity they are considering for their child before making an informed decision. Please CALL for the most updated information.
