Our experienced and trained staff members ensure that all activities are adapted to meet each child’s unique needs, abilities, and interests.
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the benefits of summer camp, regardless of their age or disabilities. Our program fosters self-esteem, confidence, and independence, helping campers reach their full potential and develop important skills that they can carry into other facets of their lives.
At Lions Camp Merrick, we empower children, teens, and adults living with deafness, blindness, diabetes, or post-traumatic stress disorder through specialized programs that elevate their unique gifts and limitless abilities in areas such as creative expression, education, and positive social interaction. Here there are no boundaries but rather small and purposeful steps in the right direction.
We understand and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual and foster a deep sense of self-discovery and self-love through our values of
- Empowerment of self and others
- Teamwork and social skills
- Sense of Wonder
