A Special Day for Special Kids: West Hills Day Camp

A Special Day for Special Kids is slated for Saturday July 30, 2011, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at West Hills Day Camp, 21 Sweet Hollow Road, Huntington. Now in its seventh year, this annual event affords children with special needs – be it autism spectrum disorder, Asperger syndrome, Tourette’s syndrome, ADHD, OCD or other related neurobiological disorders – an opportunity to feel comfortable enough to let go and just have fun in a safe environment.

Activities during the weekend will include swimming, paddle boats, fishing, arts and crafts, giant slide, castle bounce, zip line, miniature golf, games, nursery playground and much more. While these Special Kids are enjoying the many activities being offered, an array of information, guest speakers and resources also will be available to parents and professionals in the field. This year we are adding some interactive activities like challenger baseball, Special Olympics, dance performances by Reflections Dance and Dance USA, and pony rides by My Shine Program. Special Appearances by the world famous Rick Caran and Team Jilli Dog, along with Erik’s Reptile Edventures. Music is donated by David Flood of DJs Unlimited.

Admission for A Special Day for Special Kids is $12 for adults and $6 for children. Proceeds from the event benefit the scholarship fund of the Custom Education Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to help individuals with special needs acquire the services and support they require to live the quality life they deserve. Food and drink will be available for purchase, although families also can bring their own lunches. Discount tickets are available at For more information, visit the Web site or send an e-mail to
