Greater MetroWest Madrichim Teen Advocate Training Program
Greater MetroWest ABLE trains and mentors a selected group of high school students with the goal of fostering inclusive environments for youth with disabilities and learning differences in our Greater MetroWest area synagogues, recreational programs and camps. This yearlong series includes workshops, hands on experiences, working in programs in their home congregations, and the opportunity to reflect with one another about their experiences. This program helps to create opportunities for all individuals to participate meaningfully in Jewish experiences.
Jewish summer camp is the perfect opportunity to socialize with peers and become immersed in an environment filled with Jewish identity and culture. Jewish camp enables campers to explore their Judaism in new and different ways in the beautiful outdoors. There are many camp options for children with disabilities, day camps and overnight camps, inclusive programs to self-contained programs within broader camps, as well as camps specifically for children with disabilities. For more information on camps for children with disabilities, please visit the One Happy Camper NJ Guide to Finding the Right Jewish Camp for Your Child with Disabilities.
