At Camp Arroyo, ENN offers a wide variety of activities allowing kids with special needs to just be kids. Camp Arroyo was built specifically for children with life-threatening and chronic illnesses and developmental disabilities, to give them the opportunity to have a blast in a fun, untroubled, safe environment, where they feel comfortable, happy, and secure. They’re exposed to new activities, games, and experiences, and usually end up amazing themselves by doing things they had no idea — or dared not imagine — they could do.

Exceptional Needs Network currently provides three overnight camps a year – two summer sessions and one fall session. Each session accommodates 45 campers, ages 6-22. Each camper is paired 1:1 with a qualified counselor.

Camp registration generally opens in February for a two-week period. It is a random lottery selection. For future camp communications, please fill out the Join Our Database Information below.

All of our 2020 camp sessions have been CANCELLED due to COVID-19, therefore there will be NO LOTTERY for 2021 camps. All 2020 campers will automatically be enrolled in the same session in 2021.

The greatest thing about ENN is that they treat every child as an individual and appreciate them as they are. There are not a lot of places in this world that embrace these wonderful children in this way. My son looks forward to his camping trip every year and although we miss him, we know he’s safe, happy and able to be himself. Thank you ENN! ~Camper Parent
