Camp Lee Mar is a private residential special needs camp for
children and teenagers with mild to moderate learning and
developmental challenges. A structured environment, individual
attention and guidance are emphasized at all times. Campers enjoy
traditional camp activities PLUS academics, speech and language
therapy, music and art therapy, daily living skills,
sensory-motor-perceptual training, and computers. We also have
therapeutic horseback riding, a Zip Line and overnight trips. In
the past we have had two and three day trips to Canada,
Williamsburg, VA, Mystic, CT., and Hershey Park/Amish Country to
name a few. Our beautiful camp includes a Junior Olympic heated
pool, modern facilities and air-conditioned buildings (including
Since our start in 1953, Camp Lee Mar has been much more than a
summer camp; it is a life-changing experience that instills
confidence in all our campers. We follow each child's Individual
Education Plan (IEP) with the objective of keeping the camper "on
track" so that they pickup where they left off when they return to
school in the fall.
Not a week goes by at Camp Lee Mar without a special event, such
as Hawaiian Night, 4th of July Celebration, Carnival Day, Western
Night and much more! We also have an end of summer Prom (Senior
Fling) held off camp for our teenage campers in which the ladies
wear dresses and the guys wear sports jackets and ties. It is one
of the favorite events of the summer! The senior division prepares
for the Prom with Social Dance every Friday night.
Our wonderful nurturing staff members are interviewed directly
by our director and assistant director. Our staff arrive a week
before the campers and have workshops throughout orientation week
to prepare them for our campers arrival.
We have a terrific nursing staff that live on camp and
administer campers' medications. Our talented chef makes all the
meals both nutritional and delicious.
We are located in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of
Pennsylvania. Our campers come from all over the United States, as
well as a couple from overseas. We pick up at Stewart Airport in
Newburg, NY, and we also have a bus pickup in New York City.
Campers also have the option of being driven directly to camp.
