Camp Kavod

The Premier Day Camp for Special Needs in South Florida

Marleen Forkas Camp Kavod is a premier summer camp serving children and teens with special needs ages 3-22+. As the largest special needs camp in Palm Beach County, with more than 150 participants in our year round camps, we are able to provide low staffing ratios (1:1s are welcome if needed) with highly credentialed and experienced staff so each child’s individual needs are met. We add new and innovative activities and field trips each year, and offer a myriad of inclusion opportunities on campus with the Levis JCC’s typical camp and off campus in community venues.

Activities are designed to enhance social, motor, language and other vital life skills that promote greater independence. Emphasis is placed on helping campers make new friends while having fun in a safe, welcoming and nurturing environment.

During Winter & Spring School Holidays, children and teens can participate in a variety of activities on campus and in community settings.

Each new camp family is required to schedule an intake meeting with Camp Director prior to registration.
