Summer Camps 
For over thirty summers, the Marist Brothers have sponsored one-week summer camps for the handicapped. Last summer alone, over 800 handicapped children and adults had the opportunity for a week in the country in Esopus, New York, giving their families a much-appreciated respite. These camps serve the mentally handicapped, the deaf, children with cancer, and children with terminal illnesses. Student volunteers work at these camps, where there is a one-to-one ratio of counselors to campers. Some who started this program as students continue to volunteer as adults, bringing their wives and children with them.
For the campers, this program provides an opportunity that is truly unique, as most camps cannot accommodate their special needs.
