Welcome Prospective Families!

For over 32 years, I have had the pleasure of seeing our campers learn, grow, and most importantly, have fun. Having my own child with special needs, who was a camper at Lee Mar, allowed me to view our program from the perspective of a parent. I believe this enabled me to develop a special camp environment, which has positively impacted the lives of each and every CLM family. Time and time again, our camp parents have expressed how the skills gained at camp have been able to be generalized into their home lives. This speaks volumes about our unique program, the care we provide, and the trust our families have in Lee Mar.

First Time Campers

Camp Lee Mar: First Time Campers

We understand that the thought of sending your child away for the summer can be a daunting experience. We are sensitive to this and are now offering a 3 ½ week session (limited availability) for new campers under the age of 12. This program will allow our younger campers to experience CLM for the first time, with the option to extend to the end of the summer.

Take a Tour!

CLM is located in the spectacular Pocono Mountains of PA, with forests and nature all around us! Camp is situated upon over 40 acres of land, with beautiful facilities throughout. Year after year, we continuously make renovations to enhance our camper experience.

Parent Quotes

Camp Lee Mar - Summer Camp - Parent Quotes

“Ari, Lynsey, Laura, and the staff do a wonderful job. They truly care about the kids, they look out for them in every aspect. I have total confidence when my son is gone for seven weeks that not only is he going to be safe, not only is he going to learn, but he’s going to have a great time too.”

“At camp he doesn’t feel invisible. In school he knows he gets left out and that he is not included in most things and that he is different. Here, he just feels like part of the group.”

“This place is pure magic! Thanks so much for giving our kids such an amazing experience.”

“You cannot imagine the positive impact that you have had not only on our son, but our entire family. He now loves to read and isn’t satisfied unless he gets all his spelling words correct. His participation in sports, social programs and his academics has all improved. It is hard to believe that the 7 weeks that he spent at camp could really affect so many things. Our only regret is that we did not find out about Camp Lee Mar sooner.”

“Last year when he came home at the end of the summer, you could see he could do a lot more things for himself; he would advocate for himself more, his voice was louder, and he was getting more involved and into the ‘mix’.”
“It is hard to believe that this is our son’s eighth consecutive summer at Camp Lee Mar. We were a bit apprehensive about sending our 10-year-old with fragile X off to camp for 7 weeks. We are so glad we took the leap of faith. Each summer he comes home with a new level of self-confidence, improved social skills and a host of wonderful memories. He has matured greatly during the last 8 years and we feel that, without Lee Mar, we would not have a child nearly as confident, happy and well adjusted as we do.”
“Safe, happy, independent, and productive. These are the goals for my camper, and those are the skills she learns and are reinforced at Camp Lee Mar.”
“Each summer at Camp Lee Mar has brought greater skills and self-organization and a growing belief in his independence. He has proven to us that with the right kind of support, he can and will find his place in this world and he will thrive. The way Ari and all the staff have created a fun, safe place for him to grow while giving our family a chance to rest, refresh, and renew, we are so very grateful.”
