Milford Adaptive Programs
Milford Recreation Department has collaborated with Marlene Sanchez and the Camp Happiness staff to develop programs for children and young adults with special needs. These programs have been developed to provide children with special needs a fun, supportive and caring environment where they can socialize and participate in age appropriate activities. The Leadership team at Camp Happiness have put a lot of brainstorming to secure a good environment for all the participants. We have tried to keep each program as affordable as possible to the families so they can participate without financial hardships.

Check out the program descriptions below!!
