Camp for D.C. kids with special needs

By Washington Post editors

The deadline is fast approaching for D.C. residents who have children with specialized needs to enroll them in a week-long camp -- free of charge.

Fitness for Health of Rockville has been given a grant that allows them to host a mini camp for children who have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger's disorders or sensory integration disorders.

The camp will be held Aug. 2-6, 9 a.m.-noon, in the first floor gym of Fitness for Health, 11140 Rockville Pike. Stipends are available for participants.

Children must be between the ages 7 and 10, verbal and have the ability to participate in group settings. There are currently 15 spaces available.

D.C. residents interested can attend an open house Sunday, from 5-6 p.m. at Fitness for Health.

To enroll residents can visit the Fitness for Health web site, download an application, and email it to Camp@FitnessForHealth.org. Or residents can fax the application to 301-231-5434, or mail it to 11140 Rockville Pike, Suite 303, Rockville, Maryland 20852.
