Would you like to have an experience you will never forget? A summer at Camp Lee Mar may be the most rewarding and challenging summer of your life.
Camp Lee Mar is a coed overnight camp for children and young adults with mild and moderate developmental challenges. Camp Lee Mar was founded in 1953, is located in the heart of the beautiful Pocono Mountains near the Delaware River in Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania. The camp is about 90 miles from New York City and 2 & 1/2 hours from Philadelphia.
Camp Lee Mar is considered by parents and educators to be one of the finest special needs camps in the United States. Campers enjoy all the fun activities of a traditional summer camp while being encouraged to continue to learn and grow with special programs and teaching materials that emphasize academics, speech and language therapy, vocational preparation, and daily living skills. Camp Lee Mar was the first camp in the United States to inaugurate such a unique play-and-learn program, which was developed after careful study and practical research.
The facilities at Lee Mar are excellent! The bulidings are air conditioned, the brand new Junior Olympic pool is heated, the food is delicious, and there is a beautiful lake.Summer Positions Available
