A special day camp for special needs since 1962

Swim, canoe, create and explore at Silver Lake! Camp Patterson offers a fun and enriching summer day camp experience for children ages 5 years and older, particularly those with developmental delays or physical challenges. Campers meet in age groups as they participate in arts & crafts, canoeing, field trips, music, sports and swimming. Through creative and fun activities we foster positive self-esteem, respect for individual uniqueness, friendship and respect for the environment. All counselors receive training to work with children who have developmental disabilities and are certified in CPR and first aid.
