Special Needs at J Camp

The Jewish Community Center is able to support a limited number of children with special needs for J Camp, primarily through funding by Sasone and the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City. If your child has special needs or requires assistance to successfully function in a group setting and wants to attend J Camp, before enrolling, please contact the appropriate J Camp Director:

School-Age J Camp Director                                        Child Development Center (CDC) Camp
DD Gass                                                                               Machaela Whelan 
DebraG@thejkc.org or 913-327-8079                        MachaelaW@thejkc.org or 913-327-8051            

Sasone, a department of the Jewish Federation, provides critically needed support for children identified with developmental or special needs to participate in a group in J Camp programs. With the help of Sasone, and other funders, we work with Staff to modify and adapt program experiences and provide Para support as available. In addition to the J Camp enrollment fee, families are asked to pay a portion of the Para cost. Space is limited. Financial assistance is available for Para support.
